Description

One of Vogue's Best Books of 2019 "Incisive, funny, and tinged with melancholy, the timely novel follows two lost but clever souls desperate for connection." —Entertainment Weekly June Bloom is twenty-nine, broke, and an aspiring comedy writer. Hugo Best is a beloved late-night TV icon and notorious womanizer who invites her to his mansion for Memorial Day weekend. This is the story of their four days together, a "zippymagnificentdevilishly fun ride" (Vogue). When June Bloom, an assistant on the late-night comedy show, Stay Up with Hugo Best, runs into Hugo himself at an open mic following his unexpected retirement, she finds herself fielding a surprising invitation: Hugo asks June to come to his mansion in Greenwich for the long Memorial Day weekend. "No funny business," he insists. "Incisive, funny, and tinged with melancholy, this timely novel follows two lost but clever souls desperate for connection" (Entertainment Weekly). June, in need of a job and money, but harboring the remains of a childhood crush on the charming older comedian and former role model, is confident she can handle herself. She accepts. As the weekend unfolds and the enigmatic Hugo gradually reveals appealingly vulnerable facets to his personality, their dynamic proves to be much more complicated and less predictable than June imagined. "A witty and subtle commentary on sex, power, and social politics" (Refinery 29) and "an outstanding comedic debut" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), Stay Up with Hugo Best announces a gloriously irreverent, bold, and winning new voice in fiction.
