A NovelBook - 2017
In Class, Francesco Pacifico tells the story of a young Italian couple who move to America, specifically Williamsburg: The Promised Land, to chase their ambitions. Once there, they fall in with a group of Italian expats. These languidly ambitious men and women will come together and fall apart, but can they escape their fates? A grand, subversive novel that bridges Italy and America, high and low, money and art; that channels Virginia Woolf and Kanye West, Henry Miller and Lil' Wayne; Class is an unforgettable, mordantly funny account of Italians chasing the American dream.
