Samenvatting

'A love story of equal parts grit and glamour'

Vanessa Diffenbaugh, author of The Language of Flowers


For Elise and Jamey, real love is not all hearts and flowers. It's gritty, transgressive, and infuriating. Jamey belongs to New York's elegant, ferocious elite, and feels 'owned' by his privileged background; Elise is from a mixed-race family and is uncensored, brave, idiosyncratic. They meet by chance and the bond is instant, but the situation quickly spins out of control.


Set against the technicolour landscape of mid-80s New York, White Fur is a tale of money, class, sex and family; it questions what we will do to be free, and what it means to love like we might die tomorrow.


'Brilliantly written and deeply felt'

Philipp Meyer, author of The Son


'[The] poet laureate of late nights and young love'

Ada Calhoun, author of St Marks is Dead

Recensie(s)

Two barely-20-somethings from opposite sides of the tracks fall in frantic love amid the lush grit of New York City in the 1980s in Libaire's new novel.... Libaire's New York is...raw and sweaty and intoxicating.... A page-turning whirlwind steeped in pain and hope * Kirkus Reviews * A love story of equal parts grit and glamour, I loved White Fur for its honest portrait of the extremes of American society, and the love that can bloom anywhere, always, despite the odds. Jardine Libaire is an extraordinary talent -- Vanessa Diffenbaugh, author of THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS This sexy American fairytale about a star-crossed coupled solidifies Jardine Libaire's status as poet laureate of late nights and young love -- Ada Calhoun, author of ST MARKS IS DEAD Each page crackles with the intensity, fury, lust, and pure insane pleasure of first love. Jardine Libaire has written a chronicle of one couple's wild romance: its highs and lows, its delights and contractions, its beauty and its messiness. A delight to read -- Nathan Hill, author of THE NIX Brilliantly written and deeply felt, White Fur is a love story by turns comic and tragic, but always moving -- PHILIPP MEYER, author of THE SON and AMERICAN RUST White Fur is glorious: dark, dirty, and sexy, lit up with yearning and raw, young love. Libaire's sentences left me breathless. This is a Roman candle of a novel. I absolutely loved it * Amanda Eyre Ward, author of THE NEARNESS OF YOU and THE SAME SKY *
