David Gould is a young journalist in Brooklyn under contract to write True Fiction, a book about teenagers' addiction to blogs (online diaries). He's never written a book, never kept a diary and, worse yet, is suffering a career-killing case of writer's block. Entranced by the hyper-real lives of young bloggers and their diaries' subtle promises of romance and adventure, David stars his own fiction blog: online he's not a lonely writer, he's a notorious scenester. In short order his girlfriend leaves town, his diary mysteriously begins updating itself, and MsMisery - an irresistible 22-year-old indie rocker - moves to New York and begins canoodling with an obnoxious hipster. When the hipster turns out to be David's doppelganger, David is finally forced to leave his apartment and fight for his life. With gripping characters and mood-altering detail, Andy Greenwald captures the essence of what it means to be young and struggling with identity in the new century. From cyberspace to nightclub bathrooms, from Brooklyn to Utah, Miss Misery is a fast-moving, funny story about the timeless need to become the main character in your own life.
