What would you do if your life turned upside down in a New York minute?
Pink-slipped at 9 a.m. and hit by a drunk driver by midnight, 24-year-old aspiring actress, Eve Foster, moves to Manhattan where Pavlos (her 38-year-old boyfriend), lives. Just one problem. He doesn’t remember inviting her. He’s been forgetting a lot since the accident. And so, Eve arrives in New York City, ghosted. From the moment she touches down (with a broken wedding ring finger, no less), Eve’s initiation into the City that Never Sleeps is more like a hazing. From the Fashion District to Chelsea to Central Park, Eve’s efforts to make Manhattan her new home are fraught with upending encounters with the vanguard of the city. One in particular, the “Queen of Knitwear,” may just break her.
In a world drawn from Moreen Littrell’s first six months of Manhattan in the mid-1990’s, Lost in Manhattan is a riotous, cautionary tale — and roman à clef — of a wide-eyed heroine thrown into a “Sex and the City” universe. Unlike ‘insider’ Carrie Bradshaw, Eve is an outsider. Eve doesn’t know a Louboutin from a Choo.
"I don't often laugh out loud at comedic scenes set in my hometown, but Eve whacks my funny bone silly. Littrell has created a heroine whose infallible humor and improvisation in the face of Job-like trials and tribulations make this book a must-read. It's delightfully humorous and droll. Eve is an 'everywoman' you will love."
"Lost in Manhattan is a winner. A great read. Reminds me of way back in 1954 when I was assigned to the Stars and Stripes bureau in New York City. Wow, that was rough. Littrell does a great job; very literate and smooth."
"Zippy and laugh-out-loud hilarious, Lost in Manhattan is a terrific read. In Moreen Littrell's New York, Jimmy Choos wouldn't last a day."
