Publisher's Summary

Capturing the anxious, self-aware mood of young college grads in the aughts, Private Citizens embraces the contradictions of our new century: Call it a loving satire. A gleefully rude comedy of manners. The story's four whip-smart narrators - idealistic Cory, Internet-lurking Will, awkward Henrik, and vicious Linda - are torn between fixing the world and cannibalizing it. In boisterous prose that ricochets between humor and pain, the four estranged friends stagger through the Bay Area's maze of tech startups, protestors, gentrifiers, karaoke bars, house parties, and cultish self-help seminars, washing up in each other's lives once again.

    I like coffee, cats, music, superheroes, computer games, wizards, castles, spaceships, and I'm a sucker for a good love story.

    Story
    "Too dour and cynical."

    I couldn't finish. The characters in this book are so disgustingly dour, cynical, self-absorbed, and pathetic that I couldn't bring myself to spend one more minute with them. The characters, being a reflection of the story itself really are the story, and it was just too painful. The writing itself is very good, and so is the narration. I just don't have the fortitude to keep going.
