Storms are brewing in the tight-knit neighborhood of Cobble Hill. There’s ex-groupie Mandy, so underwhelmed by motherhood and her current physical state that she fakes a debilitating disease to get the attention of her skateboarding husband, Stuart. A few blocks away, Roy, a newly transplanted British novelist, has lost the thread of his next novel and his marriage to capable, indefatigable Wendy.
Around the corner, Tupper, the nervous, introverted industrial designer with a warehouse full of prosthetic limbs, struggles to pin down his elusive performance artist wife, Elizabeth. She remains…elusive. Throw in two hormonal teenagers, a ten-year-old pyromaniac, a drug-dealing “doctor,” and you’ve got a combustible mix of egos, desires, and secrets bubbling in brownstone Brooklyn.
Smart, sophisticated, and tender, Cobble Hill is an irresistible novel about four families blindly seeking purpose, community, and meaningful relationships – until one unforgettable night at a raucous neighborhood party knocks them to their senses.
