From the bestselling author of The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls comes a story of lifelong female friendship – in all its intimate agony and joy – set within a world of wealth, beauty, and expectation.
Joan Fortier is the epitome of Texas glamour and the center of the 1950s Houston social scene. Tall, blonde, beautiful, and strong, she dominates the room and the gossip columns. Every man wants her; every woman wants to be her. Devoted to Joan since childhood, Cece Buchanan is either her chaperone or her partner in crime, depending on whom you ask. But when Joan’s radical behavior escalates the summer they are twenty-five, Cece considers it her responsibility to bring her back to the fold, ultimately forcing one provocative choice to appear the only one there is.
A thrilling glimpse into the sphere of the rich and beautiful at a memorable moment in history, The After Party unfurls a story of friendship as obsessive, euphoric, consuming, and complicated as any romance.
This is a goooooooooood book
Loved the characters
I was sad when the book ended. The author is so gifted at developing these rich, endearing, flawed characters.
Hard to finish
Just awful. Stylized penny dreadful, drags on interminably then descends into a laugh out loud bad mess of soap opera type melodrama with bizarrely written,robot like characters, making hilarious ( unintended) speeches to tie up the long long long boring loose ends of a comatose plot. Dont waste your dough.
