eccentric geriatric residents stuck in a long-gone era.

sequestered away from her peers.
When Ava’s enigmatic friend Stephanie returns after an
unplanned year abroad, the intoxicating opportunist vows to
rescue Ava from a life of obscurity. Stephanie, on the hunt

Cohen brings us into a boisterous literary world bathed in
hubris and ambition. With eloquent prose and affecting
