About this title

Synopsis:

In his breathlessly paced new novel Jay McInerney revisits the nocturnal New York of Bright Lights, Big City. Alison Poole, twenty going on 40,000, is a budding actress already fatally well versed in hopping the clubs, shopping Chanel falling in and out of, lust, and abusing other people's credit cards. As Alison races toward emotional breakdown, McInerney gives us a hilarious yet oddly touching portrait of a postmodern Holly Golightly coming to terms with a world in which everything is permitted and nothing really matters.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover:

"Jay McInerney has proven himself not only a brilliant stylist but a master of characterization, with a keen eye for incongruities of urban life.

-- the New York Times Book Review

"[McInerney's] talent for capturing the nuances and idiosyncrasies of our culture[ in Bright Lights, Big City] is even more powerful evident in Story of My Life... Underneath Alison's hip, party-girl exterior and flippant vernacular is McInerney's disturbing depiction or a young woman caught in the traumatic reality of her times." -- San Francisco Chronicle

McInerney's Story of My Life is quite as brilliant as Bright Lights, Big City and a lot funnier."

-- the Sunday Times (london)
