It Was Gonna Be Like Paris by Emily Listfield

New Yorks East Village:a vibrant, decadent scene of young artists who emulate bohemian Paris of the 1920s. In this landscape populated by aspiring rock stars, addicts, Hells Angels and misfits, eccentric spontaneity is a way of life. This is where Sara, a struggling painter, works, lives and loves. She hasnt made it yet, but shes confident that her talent will carry her through. Sometimes. Sometimes she thinks shes only fooling herself. Her ally is sardonic, witty Carrie, whose look is partVoguemodel, part bag lady. Her undoing may be Brett, an irresistibly charming, fitfully romantic trouble boy. A musician, he is by turns boyishly playful, surly, impetuous and thoroughly unreliable. Sara finds her love for him as addictive as the habit into which he slips more irrevocably every day. But release from her obsession is as elusive as art itself. Emily Listfield, author ofVariations in the NightandSlightly Like Strangers,was born and raised in New York City. Her short fiction has appeared in20 Under 30, BombandtheEast Village Eye.She also writes book reviews forThe New York Times.
