When twenty-something Henry Lang loses his parents in a sailing accident, he's left entirely alone in the world but also with an inheritance of fifteen million bucks. He decides to head to Brooklyn to immerse himself in the place he's quite sure is the absolute heart of American youth culture to try and make it as a writer and editor at an upstart literary magazine. He hopes to fall in love, too. Unfortunately, Henry soon finds himself navigating increasingly baffling social difficulties with both women and work, eventually leading him to near ruin when he's hired to ghostwrite a young adult novel. Henry's integrity and entire fortune are on the line, and no one is sure if he can rescue either.
