Rezension zu "The Clasp" von Sloane Crosley

Sloane Crosley - The Clasp
miss_mesmerizedvor 3 Jahren

Back in the days of college, they were close friends. Now, a couple of years later, they are all supposed to have a great career and reunite for Caroline’s wedding. Kezia, believed to be a jewelry designer but actually just the assistant of an unbearable boss with a minor understanding of the trade. Nathaniel who was up to a literary career, has turned to Hollywood, but actually does not find anybody to produce his shows. And Victor, computer guy who was just fired from a third class search engine. They all pretend to be something they aren’t, but as things become messed up, reality can no longer be hidden and they turn out to be what they actually are.

The story is told from alternating points of view of the three protagonists. It is interesting to see how, for quite some time, they manage to beguile themselves with careers they do not have and lives they do not lead. Step by step, they have to accept reality and come to terms with their actual situation. Sometimes depressing, sometimes outspokenly funny, the author created a very realistic picture of the generation which hoped for so much and only got a small piece of the cake.

What I especially liked was the subplot of Guy de Maupassant’s story. This was cleverly interwoven with the story and added some literary substance.
