Claudia Silver to the Rescue: A Novel

'“A sharply drawn debut about a tart-tongued Gen-Xer trying to make it in Manhattan. May remind you of HBO’s Girls.” —People   “Thoroughly entertaining and surprisingly thought-provoking . . . A perfect summer book . . .Readers will start it on the beach under an umbrella, finding themselves laughing loudly at the narrator’s clever split-second comebacks, and keep coming back to see the drama unfold.” —Real Simple   “A crackling debut [with] . . . surprising emotional heft.” —Booklist   “Satisfying and unexpected . . . Readers will root for this deeply flawed but ultimately appealing heroine.” —Publishers Weekly   “Claudia Silver is an utterly lovable heroine with a voice—and a journey—that had me hooked. It’s a very funny book with a deeply compassionate heart. I rooted for Claudia, I felt for her, and I didn’t want to say goodbye.” —Lauren Graham, author of Someday, Someday, Maybe   “Kathy Ebel is a writer of razor-sharp insight and uncommon wit, with an extraordinary ability to capture the textures of life—the language and sensibilities and fashions that define a place and time. Claudia Silver to the Rescue will transport you to New York City in the early ’90s, and offers a richly detailed portrait of conflicted youth. This hugely enjoyable story manages to be funny, tense, and wise, all at once.” —Chris Pavone, author of The Expats'
