Jenny Jackson, author of PINEAPPLE STREET - a Readings from Oconomowaukee virtual event
Boswell Book Company and Books & Company present a special Readings from Oconomowaukee event with Jenny Jackson, author of Pineapple Street. In conversation with Daniel Goldin, Lisa Baudoin, and author Lauren Fox.

A deliciously funny, sharply observed debut of family, love, and class, Pineapple Street 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. 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.

From Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, author of The Nest: “What binds the book together so wonderfully is Jackson’s keen understanding of the beauty and difficulty of belonging, of how our desires can clash with our inherited narrative and what happens to the people we love when we need to rewrite the story. Pineapple Street is riveting, timely, hugely entertaining and brimming with truth.”

A graduate of Williams College and the Columbia Publishing Course, Jenny Jackson is a vice president and executive editor at Alfred A. Knopf. Pineapple Street is her first novel.
