A wildly entertaining debut about a Brooklyn Heights wife and mother who has embezzled a small fortune from her children’s private school and makes a run for it, leaving behind her trust fund poet husband, his maybe-secret lover, her two daughters, and a school board who will do anything to find her.
“[A] wonderful and sharp debut novel . . . Culliton’s prose is effortless and wickedly clever . . . Irresistible. This debut novel signals the arrival of an exciting talent.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
