The Mutual Friend
Carter Bays | Paperback | June 2022
A comedy of manners set in New York City, following a sprawling cast of characters as they navigate ambition, faith, addiction to technology, and the search for love
New York, 2015. In a city of more than 8 million people, there are always new places to visit, new connections to be made, new experiences to be shared.
But not for Alice Quick. Determined to finally take her MCAT exam and become a doctor, this has to be a summer of no distractions. So it's a shame that her chaotic roommate Roxy is persistently getting her into trouble, not the most convenient timing for her millionaire brother Bill to decide to embark upon a spiritual search for the meaning of life and plain inconvenient that Alice just can't seem to put down her phone.
And then there's the biggest distraction of all, threatening to permanently derail all of her plans: love.
Filled with warmth, humour, and heart, THE MUTUAL FRIEND is an unforgettable debut novel that perfectly captures the choreography of navigating life and love amidst the chaos of contemporary life.
