Sigrid Nunez, The Last of Her Kind, 2006.

I was underwhelmed by this novel. Ostensibly the story of the friendship between Georgette George and Ann Drayton, who meet as room-mates at Barnard, it's more a drawing of New York City as affected by the climate and mores of the Vietnam War than a gripping story. I got sufficiently bored that I didn't finish it.
