'I couldn't put it down' Grazia
Back in college, Victor loved Kezia, Kezia loved Nathaniel and Nathaniel loved himself.
Now, ten years on and reunited at the wedding of a friend, it’s as if nothing has changed. Almost.
Victor has just been fired from a middling search engine, Kezia is second-in-command to an eccentric jewellery designer, and Nathaniel, former literary cool kid, is now one of LA’s two million aspiring TV writers. As the champagne flows, Victor finds himself sharing a bizarre encounter with the mother of the groom that triggers an obsession over a legendary necklace.
Could a trip to Paris in search of the missing piece of jewellery doom or save their friendship?

'Don't miss brilliant writer Sloane Crosley’s fiction debut.' Stylist
'I opened THE CLASP and immediately realized that I'd been waiting far too long for Sloane Crosley to write a novel. Crosley is a literary addiction. There is no substitute. She is curious. She is smart. She is hilarious and edgy and generous and impossible to stop reading. Moreover, she misses nothing. Her attention to the seemingly smallest details―material, social, psychological―reveal, as the pages turn, an intricately tooled world that is as familiar as it is dazzling and new.' Heidi Julavits
