New York, fall 2008. Lisa Kolberg comes to the city to study. She moves into a vegan collective where sushi is forbidden, but where it is perfectly acceptable to fire up a joint.
Two years later, Lisa is living in Hell’s Kitchen with Fred from the wealthy Castelucci family. She dines at Manhattan’s finest restaurants and wears high heels to work at the Norwegian General Consulate. But the summer heat has reached record levels, her visa is about to expire, and every night she is woken by something itching. Small bloodthirsty creatures have invaded her apartment, her bed and her life.
NEW CITY is a novel about ambition and vanity, about the ability to survive and primal urges. How much is one willing to pay for an extraordinary and wonderful life?
