“[A] gem of a novel . . .The novel’s mix feels fresh; nearly Gothic in its representation of its doubled heroines and their savage, fervent yearnings but satisfyingly specific in its minute, deliciously petty details.” (New York Times Book Review)
“A funny, fast-paced story that follows the post-college life of a drifting, obsessive friendship, Paulina & Fran will appeal to everyone from fans of Broad City to Elena Ferrante devotees.” (Huffington Post)
“Rachel B. Glaser’s beguiling novel [is] intense and wholly original.” (New York Magazine)
“These are finely detailed, compelling, complex young adults facing archetypical trials: work and art; sex, devotion, obsession and betrayal; the cavernous future; and how to be oneself and be a friend. . . . a glittering, raucous ride and a thoughtful depiction of life: painful and ecstatic.” (Shelf Awareness)
“A rare novel that focuses its attention on the difficulties of repairing adult friendships, with a fun setting and a bold cast of characters to lighten the mood.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“GREAT BOOK ABOUT YOUNG LADIES IN ART SCHOOL. Fuuuuuuunny!” (James Franco)
“A party in paragraphs that socks you in the mouth when you least expect. I’d pay tuition to this book if it meant I could stay the whole year.” (Amelia Gray, author of Threats and Gutshot)
“When it comes to the dance-hump mating rituals of art school kids, no one does it better or funnier or with as much stylistic aplomb as Rachel B. Glaser.” (Adam Wilson, author of What's Important Is Feeling and Flatscreen)
“Uncouth, contemptuous, and terrific fun to read. Glaser thoroughly captures both the desperate intimacy of female friendships and the volatile magnificence of youth.” (Courtney Maum, author of I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You)
“This novel is like what a mirror would write if it could type. Rachel B. Glaser has written a wildly funny, sharp, wonderful book that displays the light and dark, the lies and truths, of what it takes to make and keep a friend--without losing sight of oneself.” (Lindsay Hunter, author of Ugly Girls and Daddy's)
From the Back Cover
At an elite New England art school, two young women collide. Paulina is a sexually adventurous wannabe queen bee with a devastating mean- girl streak. Fran is a gifted yet reluctant painter with gorgeous curly hair and uncertain dreams. On a trip to Norway the two are drawn together, but as adult life encroaches, jealousy and unexpected love tear them apart. Rachel B. Glaser's Paulina & Fran is both a sparkling dance party of a novel and a wicked, wistful snapshot of that moment when the carefree cocoon of adolescence opens into the permanent, unknowable future.
