Three-Martini Lunch
Three-Martini Lunch | Suzanne Rindell
From the author of the "thrilling" (The Christian Science Monitor) novel The Other Typist comes an evocative, multilayered story of ambition, success, and secrecy in 1950s New York. In 1958, Greenwich Village buzzes with beatniks, jazz clubs, and new ideas--the ideal spot for three ambitious young people to meet. Cliff Nelson, the son of a successful book editor, is convinced he's the next Kerouac, if only his father would notice. Eden Katz dreams of being an editor but is shocked when she encounters roadblocks to that ambition. And Miles Tillman, a talented black writer from Harlem, seeks to learn the truth about his father's past, finding love in the process. Though different from one another, all three share a common goal: to succeed in the competitive and uncompromising world of book publishing. As they reach for what they want, they come to understand what they must sacrifice, conceal, and betray to achieve their goals, learning they must live with the consequences of their choices. In Three-Martini Lunch, Suzanne Rindell has written both a page-turning morality tale and a captivating look at a stylish, demanding era--and a world steeped in tradition that's poised for great upheaval.

That‘s the funny thing about doubt. It makes you feel rotten as hell. But if anyone bothered to think about it, it‘s a symptom of love. It means it matters to you. It‘s the brain questioning the wisdom of the heart. It doesn‘t mean the heart doesn‘t know better all along, it only means the brain doesn‘t understand how 📓

This is one of those books that I knew was special within a few pages. It completely immersed me and I savored all 500 pages. Taking place in the publishing world on the 1950s in NYC, It isn‘t clear how the three main characters, Miles, Eden, and Cliff have related stories. There could have never been resolution for them as far as I was concerned, I loved the book that much. I went ahead and preordered Rindell‘s next book. I am a steadfast devotee

RebelReader She is becoming one of my favorite authors. Her next book is almost 500 pages too. I have an ARC of it that I‘m dying to get to, but the library holds come in fast and furious lately. 😬 1y

Having loved Rindell's debut "The Other Typist," I was eager to read this. While not as suspenseful as her debut, "Three-Martini Lunch" displays the same interesting plotting and fluid writing. The final two sentences are beautiful.

5⭐️ read!Wow! I loved this book. Set in 1950s it follows the story of 3 amazing characters who are trying to make a success in the publishing industry whilst struggling with issues of race, gender, sexuality and betrayal. I absolutely loved following these characters even when at times you might not always like them. I spent a week lost in the hipster era of NY's village in the late 50s with conflicted characters that I won't forget very quickly.

"Anyway, the topic of conversation turned to me and what my ambitions were, and sitting there at the ranks I already felt so comfortable and everything seemed so familiar, I found myself confessing to the fact I'd decided to become a writer. Only problem was, ever since I'd arrived at this decision, I'd been having a spell of writer's block." And so begins my journey with "Three-Martini Lunch."

This book is about the publishing industry in early 1900's New York. Suzanne Rindell has a lovely way of writing that is at once intriguing and enjoyable. Her. characters are interesting and she does a great job of setting you in the time period. Very enjoyable read and would also highly recommend her first book The Other Typist! I will be reading more of her books!

Mehso-so

It tries, it's fun, at times it touches on a serious issue of its time setting, but never explores it or takes a risk to go a little deeper. The characters make rom-com questionable decisions, and none are really sympathetic. But take it to the pool if you have nothing else to read, or want something Mad Men-lite.

It's a second novel that I cannot decide a rating. It's something in between. The novel disappointed me at the end. There are many gaps in characters descriptions and it's too long (500 pages). But I enjoy language, set and story. (Unfortunately I don't have a martini picture so enjoy vine;)

The three central characters in Three-Martini Lunch occupy three distinct versions of New York City in the 1950s, versions that clash and intersect along with their personal and professional lives. Miles's story is sometimes wrenching, Cliff's infuriating, Eden's rousing. 5/5⭐️

Really liked this one, esp because it's set in the publishing world. Touched my editor's soul. Liked the time period and that each of the three main characters had to overcome sociocultural obstacles. They aren't nec nice ppl, but that makes them interesting. (Good audiobook too)

"Three Martini Lunch does for publishing what Mad Men did for advertising." - James Magnuson. SOLD! I love learning about creative industries in that time period!
