Conversations with Friends meets The Goon Squad. A brilliantly funny novel of money, sex, race, liberalism and bad behaviour in the post-Obama era, Very Nice is a wickedly smart take on the way we live now.

About the Author

Marcy Dermansky is the author of the novels Twins, Bad Marie and The Red Car. She lives in New Jersey with her daughter.


Very Nice is so sexy and reads so smooth that I was utterly addicted. Trenchantly observed and darkly funny, it will stick with you long after you finish its final, ferocious sentence * Maria Semple, bestselling author of 'Where'd You Go, Bernadette' *
This is a vicious little novel, smart, efficient, mean, full of terrible people behaving terribly, incisive observations about a certain class of people pretending they had no hand in the state of the world. Writers don't come off too well, either. Absolutely delightful -- Roxane Gay, author of 'Bad Feminist' and 'Hunger'
Very Nice features a very spoiled apricot poodle, very yummy breakfasts of avocado toast, and a very naughty mother-daughter-professor love triangle - it's everything you need in your new favorite summer novel, and makes me very relieved I never got my PhD * Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians *
Better than very nice, this book is glorious. Fast, funny and filled with memorably brilliant characters * Jane Green, bestselling author of The Friends We Keep *
Very Nice is deceptively polite, a gracious rebuke to every writer who has sworn it's impossible to write about the times in which we live. Marcy Dermansky found the way in, spotted the connections holding our fragmented world together and made them sing. Her best book to date, which is saying quite a lot * Laura Lippman, bestselling author of What the Dead Know *
Subtly riotous. Dermansky has cultivated a style marked by humoUr so dry it threatens to ignite on the page. A wickedly fun and emotionally potent farce about the often-frustrating fluidity of our relationships to one another and ourselves * O Magazine *
Marcy Dermansky is a light switch, a volume knob, a fire drill. Her novels are bright and attention-grabbing, from the first page to the last, and Very Nice is her best yet. This smart, sexy and funny book is a balm for rattled nerves. Write me a thousand more books, Marcy, and I'll read them all * Emma Straub, bestselling author of Modern Lovers and The Vacationers *
A cut above your average poolside read. Smart, stylist and sizzling with sharp wit. Very Nice is an addictive tale of complex family dynamics, entitlement, money, race, sex and secrets -- CultureFly
Sly, deceptively simple and thoroughly seductive ... Dermansky's sharp satire spares none of the characters and teeters brilliantly on the edge of comedy and tragedy * Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) *
Five narrators play a game of narrative hot potato with a tale of summer sexcapades ... A hell of a lot of stylish fun * Kirkus *
A messy, sexy, super fun drama that unravels over the course of one summer ... Impossible to put down * Buzzfeed *
Uproarious * Entertainment Weekly *
Taut and smart and strange and sweet and perfect. I want to eat this book or sew it to my skin or something -- Praise for 'The Red Car', Roxane Gay
Sharp and fiery ... There is, now, a literary term for a book you can't stop reading ... It is The Red Car -- Praise for 'The Red Car', New York Times Book Review
