Rich and Pretty: A Novel (English Edition) Kindle-editie
"[A] smart, enticing novel"--Miami Herald
"A sweet yet cutting exploration of the bonds of friendship... With astute descriptions of how values, tastes, desires, and ambitions change over two decades, Alam's tale of a divergent friendship smartly reflects the trial and error nature of finding a mate and deciding how to grow up."--Publishers Weekly
"Alternating between the women's points of view, Alam provides intimate insight into each one's thoughts, feelings, and memories... Perfectly capturing a changing yet resilient friendship, this debut novel full of warmth and humor will appeal to anyone who has experienced a similar bond."--Library Journal
"Big issues get enormous due in New York writer Rumaan Alam's accomplished and moving second novel -- the nature of family, race and class relations, adoption's complexities.... Yet thankfully for us, it's a well-told story about people, not issues."--Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Rumaan Alam creates characters who are grappling with their adult identities while securing their childhood bond."--Wall Street Journal
"Written with humor and an impeccable ear for girlfriendly conversation--by a man, no less!--Rich and Pretty is a sparkling debut."--People
"Rumaan Alam transforms a whimsical beach read into compelling literary prose...Rich and Pretty is a realistic look at female friendship."--Lisa Ko, author of The Leavers
"Rich and Pretty is a beautifully written novel, a lushly detailed portrait of the mores and manners of contemporary Manhattan and a penetrating look into the heart of the generation now facing their thirties... wickedly witty, keenly insightful, and deeply, compassionately wise.--Dan Chaon, author of Await Your Reply
"Rich and Pretty...feels fresh and true in a way that few other books on the topic have managed."--Lenny Letter --Deze tekst verwijst naar een alternatieve kindle_edition editie.
As close as sisters for twenty years, Sarah and Lauren have been together through high school and college, first jobs and first loves, the uncertainties of their twenties and the realities of their thirties. Sarah, the only child of a prominent intellectual and a socialite, works at a charity and is methodically planning her wedding. Lauren--beautiful, independent, and unpredictable--is single and working in publishing, deflecting her parents' worries and questions about her life and future by trying not to think about it herself. Each woman envies--and is horrified by--particular aspects of the other's life, topics of conversation they avoid with masterful linguistic pirouettes.
Once, Sarah and Lauren were inseparable; for a long time now, they've been apart. Can two women who rarely see each other, selectively share secrets, and lead different lives still call themselves best friends? Is it their abiding connection--or just force of habit--that keeps them together?

The author didn't really explore why the two had animosity for each other sometimes as all friends do from time to time so it felt empty. The characters didn't have much substance.
