    (Three Martini Lunch) PDF/EPUB Ñ Suzanne Rindell In the Acknowledgments section of Three Martini Lunch Suzanne Rindell says she wrote this novel in an attempt to put On the Road Giovanni's Room The Best of Everything and The Bell Jar into conversation with one another This is an ambitious undertaking probably out of reach of even the most gifted of writers It's no surprise then that it's also out of reach of Suzanne Rindell Indeed this particular ambition does nothing but weigh

Three Martini Lunch characters ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Download Ç PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¿ Suzanne Rindell Read Three Martini Lunch Heir choices betrayals and passions will draw them together and change their lives for ever Cliff Nelson the privileged son of a New York publisher is slumming it around Greenwich Village enjoying booze drugs and the idea that he’s the next Jack Kerouac Fresh faced Eden Katz arrives in the city with one burning ambit. I once caught a student cheating She had turned in a project that was word for word identical to two of her friends The other two girls were suitably remorseful but this girl met me in the hallway with a defiant thrust to her chin When I called her mother and relayed what had happened her mother s casual response was and I uote I cheated in high school and I turned out fine Perhaps this is why plagiarism so deeply offends me the brazenness of it and the blas acceptance with which our culture meets it Did the student think I wouldn t notice That I was so lackadaisical a grader that I wouldn t realize I was reading the same thing three times Did her mother really think teaching her daughter she can claim the work of others with impunity was good parenting Is this the truth we are left with that you can lie and cheat and steal and still turn out fine That student s mother wouldn t like Three Martini Lunch I doubt someone who cares so little about academic integrity spends much time reading and further a person who can t grasp the wrongness of stealing something as abstract as words won t find the book s central conflict terribly compelling Rindell sets her sopho novel in the high stakes world of 1950s publishing houses a world her characters are desperate to break into each in his own way Some desperate than othersI don t want to give too much away here My reading experience felt like a breathless sprint around continuous blind corners and I would hate to rob anyone of that I will say that Rindell s writing is for me the perfect balance of plot momentum and character development All three characters who take turns narrating became 100% real to me and somehow Rindell is able to achieve that without ever slowing her pace I don t know how the hell she does it If I did I d bottle that secret sauce and sell it to novelists everywhere for 499 a pop With regards to GP Putnam s Sons and NetGalley for the advance copy On sale April 5More book recommendations by me at wwwreadingwithhipposcom

Two relatively generic things before we launch into my thoughts on this book 1 Why are there so many books lately that utilize the three overlapping storylines device Are that many being written or am I somehow just reading all of them Is anyone else getting a little tired of it 2 FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY PUBLISHERS PLEASE STOP WRITING JACKET COPY THAT GIVES AWAY SO MUCH PLOT So if you haven t done so already don t read the jacket copy of this book The description here on Goodreads is fine but the copy on the actual physical book made it obvious to me from like page 15 of a 500 page book where we were headed and that s the woooooorst I know I sound a little frustrated but I actually really liked this book Mostly I have a few nits to pick but I think that might be just me being nitpicky This is a 500 page doorstopper and in general I am skeptical of books that long but I read this in three days and I enjoyed it uite a bit This is widely getting described as Mad Men set in the publishing world and that s a fairly apt description If you love the atmosphere of Don Draper s world there s a great chance that you re going to love this one too It s 1958 Cliff is the son of a publishing mogul who says he wants to be a writer but who doesn t actually work at becoming a better writer Why should I read other writers he flippantly throws out there at one point He drops out of Columbia and insists he doesn t need to get a job because someone s going to pay him big bucks for the novel he hasn t yet begun to write Yeah he s kind of insufferable and lacking in self awareness though thankfully Rindell seems to be aware of that Then there s Eden a fresh faced college grad from Indiana who s come to New York to fulfill her dream of becoming an editor in spite of the rampant sexism and anti semitism of the 50s publishing world And finally there s Miles a young black man who s about to graduate from Columbia and who becomes preoccupied with a journey to uncover his late father s secrets The three orbit each other through a group of loosely connected friends that gravitate towards the beat scene in the Village Eventually their lives intersect in a concrete way though I really don t want to give too much away here Rindell s done a fantastic job setting the scene I became completely absorbed in the world she s created here and I loved being in that world I wouldn t want to live in it but reading about it was great fun And as tired as I m growing of the whole three narratives device Rindell handles it well for the most part The three voices are incredibly distinct as they should be and they re eually engaging But Miles s story drifts pretty far away from the other two and I did often wonder what the point of all the drifting was She ultimately does have a point but I found myself growing skeptical along the way wondering if maybe Rindell was trying to do too much And maybe she was but she does a pretty good job of bringing it all back around full circle As long as this book is the one thing that really frustrated me the most is Rindell s tendency to tell instead of show The most frustrating example view spoilerIt bothered me SO DAMN MUCH that after Eden spent so much time talking about how she s not going to get married because she can t give up on her career she goes on a date with Cliff and then the very next time we see her THEY RE MARRIED In a book this long Rindell really should have explained that seemingly sudden change of heart a little Especially when we have a lengthy paragraph dedicated to the hairstyle of the first girl that Miles slept with hide spoiler
