With an unflinching eye, Triburbia explores Tribeca, Manhattan, where an artists' community has been overrun by those made staggeringly wealthy by the world of finance. A group of fathers - a sound engineer, a writer, a career criminal - meet each morning at a local cafe after the school run. Over the course of a single year, we learn about their dreams deferred, their secrets and mishaps, as they confront truths about ambition, wealth and sex. Seen through the eyes of these men and the women with whom they share their lives, Triburbia shows that our choices and their repercussions not only define us, but irrevocably alter the lives of those we love. Wonderfully layered and complex, Triburbia creates a powerful portrait of a group of unlikely friends and a neighbourhood in transition.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Greenfeld has written some notable nonfiction... but this is his first novel. You wouldn't know he was debutant... Triburbia is a satire with a pulse... the writing creates a powerful undertow. At first glance, the lives of these boho-riche characters appear as enviable as their apartments. After Greenfeld has entered their pockets, souls and bedrooms, you envy them nothing. * Sunday Times *
The lives of a group of upper-middle-class New Yorkers... are deftly captured in Karl Taro Greenfeld's first novel... [a] perceptive and lively portrait of contemporary American life * Observer *
The excellent Triburbia brings to mind such modern masters as Cheever, Updike, and Salter, but Greenfeld delivers his own take on American life. This is fiction of the first rank - intense, suspenseful, and relevant in the most urgent way. -- Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk
Greenfeld reveals his characters' humanity with sly humor and an unerring eye. * People Magazine *
Greenfeld taps into something universal with Triburbia... [he] brings a reporter's curiosity and an artist's empathy to his crackling, observant first novel. * Entertainment Weekly *
Karl Taro Greenfeld has matched Updike and Jay McInerney -- Patrick Neale * Booksellers' Choice *
