Lucky Us

$19.99

Product Description

'Lucky Us' is a brilliantly written, deeply moving, fantastically funny novel of love, heartbreak, and luck.

Disappointed by their families, plucky half sisters Iris, the hopeful star and Eva the sidekick, journey through 1940s America in search of fame and fortune. Iris’s ambitions take the pair across the America of Reinvention in a stolen station wagon, from small-town Ohio to an unexpected and sensuous Hollywood, and to the jazz clubs and golden mansions of Long Island. In Hollywood, glamorous Iris embarks on a promising career in film − until she’s caught on camera in a lesbian dalliance with a starlet, which gets her blacklisted. With the help of a sympathetic gay Mexican makeup artist as well as their con-artist father, Edgar, the girls travel across the country to New York and finagle jobs with a wealthy Italian immigrant family. Iris promptly falls in love with the family’s pretty cook, Reenie, who is inconveniently married.

Filled with gorgeous writing, memorable characters, and surprising events, 'Lucky Us' is a thrilling and resonant novel about success and failure, good luck and bad, the creation of a family, and the pleasures and inevitable perils of family life, conventional and otherwise. From Brooklyn’s beauty parlors to London’s West End, a group of unforgettable people love, lie, cheat and survive in this story of our fragile, absurd, heroic species.
