9780061914317: Very Recent History: An Entirely Factual Account of a Year (c. AD 2009) in a Large City

Very Recent History by Choire Sicha is an idiosyncratic and elegant narrative that follows a handful of young men in New York City as they navigate the ruins of money and power—in search of love and connection.

After the Wall Street crash of 2008, the richest man in town is the mayor. Billionaires shed apartments like last season’s fashions, even as the country’s economy turns inside out. The young and careless go on as they always have, getting laid and getting laid off, falling in and out of love, and trying to navigate the strange world they traffic in:  the Internet, complex financial markets, credit cards, pop stars, micro-plane cheese graters, and sex apps.

A true-life fable of money, sex, and politics, Choire Sicha’s Very Recent History: An Entirely Factual Account of a Year (c. AD 2009) in a Large City turns our focus to a year in the life of a great city.

From the Back Cover:

What will the future make of us?

In one of the greatest cities in the world, billionaires shed apartments like last season's fashion trends while the country's economy turns inside out. Meanwhile, the young and careless go on as they always have, getting laid and getting laid off, falling in and falling out of love, and trying to navigate the strange world they traffic in. Choire Sicha's debut piece of narrative nonfiction, told in a scientifictive voice, follows a man named John and his circle of friends, lovers, and enemies while cataloguing artifacts of our very recent every day as if it were already forgotten: the Internet, complex financial markets, credit cards, pop stars, microplane cheese graters, and sex apps.

About the Author:

Choire Sicha is the coproprietor of The Awl. A two-time editor of Gawker, he has written for the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times as well as a suspiciously large number of magazines exactly one time. He lives in Brooklyn.
