Claudia and Jeremy, a young married couple (she's an aspiring filmmaker, he's an indie musician), are on the verge of making it. Her first film was a sensation at Sundance and is about to have its theatrical release; he's assembled a new band and is a few songs shy of an album. They've recently purchased their first home--a mid-century bungalow with a breathtaking view of Los Angeles--with the magical assistance of an adjustable-rate mortgage. But a series of seismic events--the tanking of Claudia's film, the return of Jeremy's manipulative ex-girlfriend, and the staggering adjustment of their monthly mortgage payments--deal a crushing blow to their dreams of the bohemian life and their professional aspirations and make them question their values and their shared vision of the future.
About the Author

“Wildly entertaining.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Part social satire, part melodrama, part intimate domestic portrait, the book feels like a natural follow-up to [Janelle] Brown’s bestselling 2008 debut. . . . Both books [are] page-turners. . . . Brown has an uncanny eye for contemporary characters and settings, and that’s definitely part of the fun.”—Los Angeles Times
“Richly told . . . Maybe some wisdom can be gleaned from this recession after all.”—The Seattle Times
“Terrific . . . [a] withering satire.”—Real Simple
