'A love story of equal parts grit and glamour' Vanessa Diffenbaugh, author of The Language of FlowersFor Elise and Jamey, real love is not all hearts and flowers. It's gritty, transgressive, and infuriating. Jamey belongs to New York's elegant, ferocious elite, and feels 'owned' by his privileged background; Elise is from a mixed-race family and is uncensored, brave, idiosyncratic. They meet by chance and the bond is instant, but the situation quickly spins out of control. Set against the technicolour landscape of mid-80s New York, White Fur is a tale of money, class, sex and family; it questions what we will do to be free, and what it means to love like we might die tomorrow. 'Brilliantly written and deeply felt' Philipp Meyer, author of The Son '[The] poet laureate of late nights and young love' Ada Calhoun, author of St Marks is Dead
