Young and beautiful, hip and indulgent, sex-crazed and alcohol-fuelled, she can neither pay her fees for drama school nor track down her indifferent father.

Story of My Life Summary

Story of My Life by Jay McInerney

It is party time in eighties Manhattan. Smart, sassy and cynical, Alison lives for the moment. Her life is a carnival of gossip and midnight sessions of Truth or Dare, and her cocaine-bashing friends and flirting flatmates all crave satiation. Young and beautiful, hip and indulgent, sex-crazed and alcohol-fuelled, Alison can neither pay her fees for drama school nor track down her indifferent father. She juggles rent money with abortion fees, lingering lovers with current conquests and is the despair of her gynaecologist. She's fallen deeply in lust with Dean, although that nasty present Skip Pendleton left her with hasn't yet cleared up. Story of her life right? But in a world of no consequences, Alison is heading for a meltdown.

Story of My Life Reviews

'Line for line, it's one of the funniest novels I have ever read' John Sutherland, London Review of Books 'McInerney has proven himself not only a brilliant stylist but a master of characterisation, with a keen eye for the incongruities of urban life' New York Times Book Review 'Story of My Life is quite as brilliant as Bright Lights, Big City' Sunday Times 'McInerney's novels, filled with the depiction of glamorous imbecilities and hilarious excesses, are acute about a certain kind of Manhattan amorality. They offer a swift, intelligent guide to the latest racket' Observer
