    This is a vicious little novel, smart, efficient, mean, full of terrible people behaving terribly, incisive observations about a certain class of people pretending they had no hand in the state of the world Writers don t come off too well, either Absolutely delightful.

    I know I probably shouldn t be saying this too loud but I have never read a Marcy Dermansky book before I have read reviews of her work Some of my most keen and thoughtful Goodreads friends have described her previous work as witty, defiant, buoyant and electric So when I saw this on offer I knew I just had to read it Indeed, Very Nice reads like a guilty pleasure that you can devour in one sitting The plot seems simple a lauded author sleeps with one of his students then falls in love with her mother But that s the magic of Dermansky Everything is not what it seems All of her characters are flawed, quite unlikable in fact Their...

    Call something a literary soap opera and I can t read it fast enough Here is one about sex, writing, race, and politics The lines Dermansky walks are fine and she navigates them expertly with humor and razor sharp insight This is a n...

    Rachel is taking care of her writing prof s poodle in exchange for a good grade She also slept with him, but because she wanted to, not for an A She takes the dog home for the summer, where her mother is still adjusting to life without her husband, who has left her to live in Tribeca with an airline pilot Zahid, the writing professor, had a successful debut novel but he s spent the advance for his second novel long ago and now needs to find a new teaching position, so he sub lets his apartment to the sister of his best friend, a woman who works in the male dominated world of finance This is a short novel with many characters, all of whom get to be the centers of their own chapters And the novel has a broad reach, from dissatisfaction in an affluent commuter town, to the misogynistic reaches of New York finance, to the inner workings of publishing and academia So it shouldn t work The characters should be one dimensional And yet, Marcy Dermansky manages to pull it all off There are a ton of characters, all of them behaving in the most outrageous of ways, yet they all feel very human Zahid may be sleeping w...

    What a wonderful read The bizarre interconnections of a small group of people and their emotional lives are explored in this delicious dramedy of manners I had the urge to create a chart detailing all the relationships Ordinarily, one can point to a catalyst, but there are several catalytic agents at work propelling the plot Was it the relationship between Rachel and Zahid, her professor Was it the decamping of the pater familias to his mistress Was it Becca s vulnerability after losing her husband and her dog I won t even begin to analyze all the relationships, coincidences and connections, but trust me, this is a great read Denansky does a great job in allowing each character to have a voice in this novel I loved them all, maybe not Jonathan, who left his wife This technique allowed the reader to understand each of the characters, and feel sympathetic towards each one I was absolutely mesmerized by this novel I loved th...

    I liked the dog That s about it There was no redeeming qualities to any of the characters presented The liberal overtones were completely unnecessary and basically made the characters even ridiculous But maybe that was the point The dog I liked the dog.

    In this engaging novel, we hear from a variety of interconnected characters Rachel has a crush on her professor and decides to make a move But her mother Becca also has eyes for him This book was very simply written but it worked I liked all of the characters as well as how the book moved.

    Cringe inducing Every single character is horrendously selfish not a single one of them worth rooting for The story is non existent, since it s basically just an exploration of people s myopic self centeredness and don t even get me started on that ending ridiculous Dermansky s writin...

    Rachel is in love with her writing professor, Becca is recently abandoned by her husband, Khloe wants to requite her unrequited love, Jonathan is unsatisfied with his new living situation, and Zahid just wants someone to take care of him Dermansky gathers these various characters together and writes a scathing, hilarious commentary skewering modern life The humor here is pointed and merciless, while the story is off and running dragg...
