Elliott Bay Book Company says
We are delighted to have Sloane Crosley, who has regaled readers with sharp, sweet nonfiction essay collections (I Was Told There’d Be Cake, How Did You Get This Number), here for the paperback of her wonderful debut novel, The Clasp. Seattle freelance writer Deanna Duff will conduct an onstage interview with Sloane Crosley tonight.

"Crosley is already an established humorist…and her signature wit is sharp as ever here. She is startlingly good at portraying comically awful characters who would seem cartoonish if they weren’t also so recognizable. Crosley is an incisive observer of human nature in general and of a generation in particular….[A] highly comic, highly affecting novel."—Julia Pierpont, The New York Times Book Review

"Crosley is best known for her comic essays, some of which were collected in I Was Told There'd Be Cake, but her gifts—keen observation, mordant humor, an affinity for the bittersweet—translate surprisingly seamlessly into fiction. [A] sad, hopeful, endlessly entertaining book." —Lev Grossman, Time
