Disclaimer: Not for everyone..pessimistic views, cynical, some stream of conciousness
Written in the late 70's Speedboat was considered an unconventional novel, and was awarded the Hemingway Prize for Best First Novel of the Year. It will be interesting to see how today's readers react.
Speedboat has been labeled a series of vignettes, no real plot, but "clean and concise delving into a broad range of things." The narrator is a neurotic, funny, bright New York woman and leads the reader on an original journey highlighted with cynicism and wit.
