Oh and I've decided to post the UK edition (I believe the US one is out already anyway), which will be publisher later, but I really prefer this cover - it's absolutely gorgeous!
A novel about subprime mortgages, ruthless Hollywood economics, and the unraveling of a young marriage.
This Is Where We Live tells the story of Claudia and Jeremy, a young, artistic married couple (she's an aspiring filmmaker; he's an indie musician) who are on the verge of making it. Her first film was a sensation at Sundance and is about to have its theatrical release; he’s assembled a new band and is a few songs shy of an album. They’ve recently purchased their first home — an adorable bungalow with a breathtaking view of the city of Los Angeles — with the magical assistance of an adjustable rate mortgage. But a series of seismic events — the tanking of Claudia’s film, the return of Jeremy's ex-girlfriend (a manipulative, self-destructive, fabulously successful artist), and the staggering adjustment of their monthly mortgage payments—deals a crushing blow to their dreams of the bohemian life and their professional aspirations, and makes them question their values and their shared vision of the future.
