Okay. Obsession take four. This time it’s platonic, sort of. When Louise, a disillusioned writer meets bored socialite Lavinia, the two are drawn into an increasingly dysfunctional friendship. Lavinia’s money and social clout offer Louise what talent hasn’t allowed her; entree into an elite literary scene. Written in the present tense, Social Creature is sumptuous in its details and propulsive in its plot. The reader journeys with Louise through a funhouse mirror tiled with Instagram squares. Call it The Talented Mr. Ripley meets Single White Female with a millennial twist.
