We’re absolutely delighted to welcome novelist Jenny Jackson all the way from New York to Mr B’s to discuss ‘Pineapple Street’, an absolute must-read debut for 2023! Prepare to be consumed by the lives of the beautiful and rich Stockton family of New York City, who quickly learn that money can’t always buy you happiness. For fans of Curtis Sittenfeld and Kiley Reid, and with a TV adaptation already on the way, this is one debut not to be missed!
Jenny will be in conversation with Daisy Buchanan, award-winning journalist and author of ‘Careering‘ and ‘Insatiable,’ as well as podcast host of the chart-topping You’re Booked’.
About the book:
Pineapple Street follows three women in an old Brooklyn Heights clan: one who was born with money, one who married into it, and one who wants to give it all away. Darley, the eldest daughter in the well-connected, carefully guarded Stockton family, has never had to worry about money. She followed her heart, trading her job and her inheritance for motherhood, sacrificing more of herself than she ever intended.
Sasha, Darley’s new sister-in-law, has come from more humble origins, and her hesitancy about signing a pre-nup has everyone worried about her intentions. And Georgiana, the baby of the family, is falling in love with someone she can’t (and really shouldn’t) have, and must confront the kind of person she wants to be. Shot through with the indulgent pleasures of life among New York’s one-percenters, Pineapple Street is a smart, escapist debut novel that sparkles with wit.
A lovely, absorbing, acutely observed novel about class, money and love.’ Nick Hornby

Truly the smartest and most deliciously fun novel I’ve read in ages’ Kevin Kwan
