Synopsis: During the last months of the disco era, in the very early 1980s, a popular dance club becomes the centre of nightlife for a group of young people new to Manhattan - "boyfriendless social failure" Alice; her treacherous friend from Hampshire College, charlotte; their roommate, Holly; and the five Harvard guys the women meet in the city: Jimmy, the "Dancing Ad Man", who hangs on to his job by getting clients into the club; handsome corporate lawyer and part-time environmentalist Tom; Des, the club's allegedly bisexual underboss, who seems to specialise in women; Dan, an editorial assistant nostalgic for the intellectual ferment of the 1950s; and Josh, a neophyte prosecutor and disco enthusiast who suspects that the club is not being run according to conventionally accepted accounting principles.

From the Inside Flap: "An airy blend of Thurber and Nancy Mitford, sophisticated without making a fuss about it, and lots of fun."--Salon Recommends

"Miraculous and unexpected . . . puts one in the the mind of the good old days of elegant social fiction--of Wharton and Fitzgerald, Marquand and Cheever.--The American Spectator

"Always entertaining."--USA Today

"Mr. Stillman's novel is witty and has all the nuances that have made him the popular writer and director of such films as Metropolitan and Barcelona."--The Wall Street Journal

"A cinematic historical first: A book that redeems, and explains, a [movie] . . . A classy, well-packaged and well written story."--New Times
