Hernández Summary An Innocent Fashion “Writing in a fervently literary style that flirts openly with the traditions of Salinger Plath and Fitzgerald Hernández is a diamond sharp satirist and a bracingly fresh chronicler of the heartbreak of trying to grow up Honest and absurd funny and tragic wild and lovely this novel describes modern coming of age with poetic precision” Kirkus Reviews starred The literary love child of The Devil Wears Prada and The Bell Jar this singular debut novel is the story of Ethan a wide eyed new Ivy League grad who discovers that his dream of “making it” at leading New York City fashion magazine Régine may well be his und. Review originally posted at All Books Considered 4 STARS I m not sure where to begin with this book it wasn t anything like I expected but it was juicy in its prose and plot and seriously lovely all the same I would almost say this is a mash up of The Devil Wears Prada and The Secret History with a smattering of Less Than Zero and The Bell Jar Considering that all of these are favorite books of mine this was such a compelling read for me I had no idea what I was in store for when I started this book but I loved it Unlike those recent books I ve read this year about millennials graduating from college and moving to NY that were complete failures this was the book I ve been waiting for I think the difference was that there wasn t the adolescent obsession with money even though money plays a very big part in this book but there was a focus on than just money and struggling to make it It was complex and the relationships in it were very real to me and extremely entangled I also immediately connected to Ethan I loved the narrative of his past told in scenes juxtaposed in the present to give a better sense of understanding of the him as a person but also his circumstances This was a pretty wild ride I particularly loved the ending although I know it won t be for everyone It was just so perfect for the mood and tone of the book An Innocent Fashion came out yesterday on July 5 2016 you can purchase HERE and I definitely recommend this one He ran his fingers lightly through my hair his touch feeling like a hundred Holy Spirits flowing through me I looked up from lap and into one of those moments in life marked by utmost clarity From the depths of Dorian s expansive eyes I saw the truth flowing Aside from Madeline Dorian was the best love I had the best love I d ever had and ever would A love so perfect it even looked perfect
