Normal Girl, by Molly Jong-Fast

Normal Girl


Normal Girl is a searing, bitchy, funny novel about privilege in wretched excess and the accidental nature of grace.  Molly Jong-Fast is a prodigy.  Parents everywhere should be horrified by this deeply impressive debut.”
—Jay McInerney

“Rich in dark comedy and sad pronouncements.  The writing is always taut and effective, precise and assured.”
London Times
“[Molly Jong-Fast] has a great ear and a keen eye for the tired and tawdry world she describes here…obvious talent.”
The Boston Globe
“Already posted to be as talked-about as Fear of Flying.”
“An edgy comedy about a 19-year-old rich girl in New York who has ‘more issues than Harper’s Bazaar.’”
USA Today
“So much talent, so young a writer! Hard-edged, savage, funny, brilliant.”
—Fay Weldon
“If you want to know what goes on in the minds of New York’s young, rich, and famous, read Molly Jong-Fast’s hilarious novel, Normal Girl.”
—Susan Cheever
