In the summer of 2003, economic downturns and high housing costs have forced three unwilling roommates to forge an uneasy alliance, but all is not well in the green house on Pacific St. Eric Lynch is having an affair with his boss, selling cocaine out the back of his stolen company car and running further afoul of a local tycoon who fancies himself a kingpin of organized crime. Emily Merrigan, his disgruntled roommate and ex-fiancée, can’t get a job, can’t get a date, and the Death card keeps popping up at ill-opportune moments in her tarot readings. Meanwhile, Adam Jacobins, the third member of the household, is having a minimalist nervous breakdown – or at least he thinks it’s a nervous breakdown, but he can’t really be sure. Amid this existential crisis, one thing he can be sure of is that, on a cold summer night in San Francisco, he really needs a good cup of coffee, and once he crosses paths with Inga Leonard, the overnight barista at an all-night café, neither of their lives will ever be quite the same. A Beautiful Cup is everything that you could want in a novel – love, sex, crime, fledgling mobsters, tarot readings, dancing, mayhem, fog, beautiful cups of coffee and beautiful people who serve them.
