Park Slope Novel: Fact or Fiction?

New, 3 comments

"I read the entire 379 pages of Prospect Park West, Amy Sohn's roman a clef about Park Slope moms," Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn writes. OTBKB's take? "Is it truthful? The book is filled with cliches about the Bugaboo culture in Park Slope and the parents that live there. And you know what they say about cliches." Those topics include "envy and obsession with neighborhood celebrities and real estate...the thinly veiled racism that accompanies the obsession with certain schools, the zany culture of the Food Coop and on and on."
