Publisher's Summary

From the author of the "thrilling" (The Christian Science Monitor) novel The Other Typist comes an evocative, multilayered story of ambition, success, and secrecy in 1950s New York.

In 1958, Greenwich Village buzzes with beatniks, jazz clubs, and new ideas - the ideal spot for three ambitious young people to meet.

Cliff Nelson, the son of a successful book editor, is convinced he's the next Kerouac, if only his father would notice. Eden Katz dreams of being an editor but is shocked when she encounters roadblocks to that ambition. And Miles Tillman, a talented black writer from Harlem, seeks to learn the truth about his father's past, finding love in the process.

Though different from one another, all three share a common goal: to succeed in the competitive and uncompromising world of book publishing. As they reach for what they want, they come to understand what they must sacrifice, conceal, and betray to achieve their goals, learning they must live with the consequences of their choices.

In Three-Martini Lunch, Suzanne Rindell has written both a pause-resisting morality tale and a captivating look at a stylish, demanding era - and a world steeped in tradition that's poised for great upheaval.

    "Great story, great narration = great book !"

    I seriously enjoyed this well-written, compelling character drama of struggling writers in NYC, circa 1958. The 16 hours flew by ! Definitely worth the time if you are looking for literate entertainment.

    "Great book, starts of slow"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but I would say to push through the 1st chapter, then the book picks up
