Very recent history: an entirely factual account of a year (c. AD 2009) in a large city
Very Recent History by Choire Sicha is an idiosyncratic and elegant narrative that follows a handful of young men in New York City as they navigate the ruins of money and power--in search of love and connection.
After the Wall Street crash of 2008, the richest man in town is the mayor. Billionaires shed apartments like last season's fashions, even as the country's economy turns inside out. The young and careless go on as they always have, getting laid and getting laid off, falling in and out of love, and trying to navigate the strange world they traffic in: the Internet, complex financial markets, credit cards, pop stars, micro-plane cheese graters, and sex apps.
A true-life fable of money, sex, and politics, Choire Sicha's Very Recent History: An Entirely Factual Account of a Year (c. AD 2009) in a Large City turns our focus to a year in the life of a great city.

It is a book that pieces together our every day, as if it were already forgotten"--|
