Audiobook: FIN AND LADY by Cathleen Schine, read by Anne Twomey

Fin & Lady: A Novel - Cathleen Schine

I have some of my own (very vague) memories of 1960s New York City--I arrived there in the spring of 1964, just like Fin, although he's more than a decade older than I am; the novel's setting is an absolute sweet spot for me, and was definitely part of its appeal. The Hadleys' New York wasn't mine, however; privileged by money, place, and youthful beauty, Lady and Fin have the sort of life that I rarely encounter outside of fiction. Still, their story and their relationship rarely felt less than real to me--I couldn't resist them, although I admit I didn't try very hard.
