“A vibrant and hilarious debut…Pineapple Street is riveting, timely, hugely entertaining and brimming with truth.” —Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, New York Times bestselling author of The Nest

“A delicious new Gilded Age family drama… a guilty pleasure that also feels like a sociological text.” —Vogue

A deliciously funny, sharply observed debut of family, love, and class, this zeitgeisty novel follows three women in one wealthy Brooklyn clan

Darley, the eldest daughter in the well-connected old money Stockton family, followed her heart, trading her job and her inheritance for motherhood but giving up far too much in the process; Sasha, a middle-class New England girl, has married into the Brooklyn Heights family, and finds herself cast as the arriviste outsider; and Georgiana, the baby of the family, has fallen in love with someone she can’t have, and must decide what kind of person she wants to be. 

Rife with the indulgent pleasures of life among New York’s one-percenters, Pineapple Street is a smart, escapist novel that sparkles with wit. Full of recognizable, loveable—if fallible—characters, it’s about the peculiar unknowability of someone else’s family, the miles between the haves and have-nots, and the insanity of first love—all wrapped in a story that is a sheer delight.


  • Eye roll inducing

    By C-mach
    This was an easy read but I didn’t enjoy it. The characters were one dimensional and it was very cliché.
  • Pass

    Do not spend money on this waste of time book. Boring and pointless
  • Taken nowhere

    By Hillary in Newburyport
    Didn’t care for any of the characters, therefore it brought me nowhere.

    Just okay.
  • Beautiful Self Discovery

    By Cheated by Steph
    The whole story was an inside look at the dynamics of a generationally old monied family. There really wasn’t a plot except that circumstances caused several characters to reflect on who they are and why they are that way. Once they did that, the book was simply over. I loved the characters and hoped for more, but once they each figured out what their own hang up was, they were a new person. You didn’t see their relationships grow after that. There could have been so much more.
  • Pineapple street. . . Blah blah blah

    By forcedreader
    Just awful and I wouldn’t recommend to anyone. Babbling without an actual story. If I could give zero stars that would be my rating.
  • A sweet read

    By youcallmesomething
    Funny and witty and serious at the same time.
  • Disappointed!

    By PJk9lover
    Another "haves" vs "have not" read and appeasement to the left.
