You are at a nightclub talking to a girl with a shaved head. The club is either Heartbreak or the Lizard Lounge. All might become clear if you could just slip into the bathroom and do a little more Bolivian Marching Powder. Then again, it might not.

So begins our nameless hero's trawl through the brightly lit streets of Manhattan, sampling all this wonderland has to offer yet suspecting that tomorrow's hangover may be caused by more than simple excess. Bright Lights, Big City is an acclaimed classic which marked Jay McInerney as one of the major writers of our time.

'Probably the best book ever written about being young, about doing drugs and about music' -
Tony Parsons, Daily Express

'A rambunctious, deadly funny novel that goes for the right mark - the human heart' -
Raymond Carver

'McInerney earns his place in literary history with Bright Lights, Big City, the comic morality tale of a spoilt young man making a mess of his life in Manhattan ... a landmark evocation of the wasteful decade it lampoons' -
Guardian 'The seminal novel of the 1980s' New York Times
