This Is Where We Live
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.
"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
