Neon In Daylight

Neon In Daylight (Catapult, January 9 2018)

 

“What do you get when a writer of extreme intelligence, insight, style and beauty chronicles the lives of self-absorbed hedonists―The Great GatsbyBright Lights, Big City, and now Neon in Daylight. Hermione Hoby paints a garish world that drew me in and held me spellbound. She is a marvel.” ― Ann Patchett, author of Commonwealth

Neon in Daylight is a classic New York City novel―sleek and stylish, both in literary craft and in the milieu portrayed. Hermione Hoby’s misfits combust on the page, but what sets this book apart is that her city isn’t just a playground―it’s remarkably lonely, punctuated by a series of connections and breakdowns that leave you feeling compassion for the characters long after the book is finished.” ― Stephanie Danler, New York Times bestselling author of Sweetbitter

“Bracingly intelligent and imbued with deep, humane wit, Neon in Daylight is an ode to the transience of the present, an exploration of the fierce and fragile bonds that guide us. Hermione Hoby channels the spirit of Joan Didion and the keen observational eye of Ben Lerner to show us the here and now, made luminously real.” ― Alexandra Kleeman, author of You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine
