Lucy Ives’s novella nineties is a portrait of teenage friends navigating Manhattan’s privileged class in an era of excess. Against the backdrop of a New York City private school during the 1990s, three girls steal a credit card for a gratuitous one-day shopping spree. As they traverse a world shaped by luxury and face temptations that—for better or worse—instruct their movement toward adulthood, the girls experience the tension of burgeoning sexuality and the thrill of testing moral boundaries.
nineties is the strange and subtle story of selfishness, materialism, and confusion during the unique and fleeting moment when girls near the end of girlhood.
