He told us about his book Guyland: This is the age that men used to get married, join the job market, and finish their educations. Men tend to party it up, avoid responsibility, and live at home.
Reznik captured the reality of the hippie lifestyle and values, then contrasted it with the corporate world where the main character Laila, was asked to make some painful choices to keep her job safe. The novel left me with much to contemplate well after I finished it.
Like Laila, I was a young naive girl thrust into a world that pressured girls to have sex and do drugs. I saw how the "recreational" drugs destroyed a lot of people I knew, and how damaging it was to young women who had sex for all the wrong reasons.
I remember when abortion was illegal and friends of mine went to desperate means to deal with unwanted pregnancies just like Ivy did.
While Laila is trying to emancipate from her family and childhood self, she finds herself vulnerable to amoral, narcissistic people who disguise themselves as cool, hip activists.
These self serving character types also show up in her present life. As the stories of past and present are interwoven, some dangerous secrets threaten to destoy everything that she has built.
