Sharp-tongued, fearsome Paulina meets lovely, listless Fran one night at a house party held near their privileged New England art school. Together they drift through their classes, critique their fellow students, lavish attention on their curls and nurture their shared dreams of genius. But when their burgeoning friendship tips from intensity into enmity our two heroines find themselves cast out from the halcyon days of art school, divided from one another and set adrift in the increasingly disappointing world of adulthood.

Written with wit and brio, dancing between razor-sharp satire and a tender portrait of unrequited love, Paulina & Fran is a beguiling whirl of a novel from a writer of immense talent.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I loved the seductive atmosphere of Paulina & Fran, the exuberant and funny writing, and the wonderfully unpredictable characters - Emma Healey, author, Elizabeth is Missing

A beautifully complex and brutal exploration of female friendship, I loved this book and it savaged me. I also laughed A LOT. Hilarious and intoxicating, thrillingly treacherous, Paulina & Fran writhes like a bag of snakes. Rachel B. Glaser is a stylist, a bandit and a necromancer. Reading her is like leaping with someone from planet to planet, ending up on your back, dazed, in fine company - Emma Jane Unsworth, author, Animals

Reading Paulina & Fran is like watching a beautiful woman expertly throw knives into a wall. Viciously funny, tender, and sexy all at once, every page full of deft and skewering observations. No one is spared - Catherine Lacey, author, Nobody is Ever Missing

Paulina & Fran is bewitching, blisteringly honest, painfully funny and startlingly poignant. It's Mean Girls for those of us still unconvinced that we're grownups. I didn't want it to end - Lisa McInerney, author of, The Glorious Heresies

“A perfect book of brutal friendship, cutting humour and longing”

I need to call Rachel B. Glaser right now and ask her so many things about this joyous book.

Paulina is flighty, brilliant, cruel; Fran is lovely, curled, gentle. When Paulina decides to befriend Fran on a trip to... More
