Cake Summary

Cake by Sandra Newman

Fleeing to London from the spectacular collapse of her family, Tanya builds a business and begins finally to conquer her addiction to sex. Then the gorgeous, chaotic, ex-prostitute Eleanor enters her life and her home. El is an addict with a history of violence - and possibly a great artist. And sex with a woman can't be sex addiction, can it? Tanya decides that what El needs is a safe haven. It is a decision she comes to regret because, in Sandra Newman's rollercoaster world, murder begins at home.

Cake Reviews

"About The Only Good Thing: 'A show-stealing, risk-taking first novel... Newman has a liltingly poetic rhythm, an uncanny ear for dialogue and nicely bathetic sense of comic timing. The deadpan tone is rueful and witty by turns, and utterly absorbing.' Guardian; 'The Only Good Thing is told with wit and a sure-handedness unusual in a first novel. It is heartening to know there's a new voice out there willing and eager to take to the stage in such a daring fashion.' New York Times Book Review"
