Pineapple Street


Jackson, Jenny


Staff Pick, Literature (by Flora)

If you are looking to fill the Succession-shaped void in your life this summer, Pineapple Street is the book for you. The uber-wealthy Stocktons made their money in real estate, and much of the drama of this intergenerational saga takes place in the family home, an impressive - and expensive - townhouse on Pineapple Street in Brooklyn Heights. This amusing novel follows the lives of stay-at-home mother, Darley (constantly mortified by her own children); younger sister, Georgiana (embroiled in an ill-advised affair with a work colleague); and their sister-in-law, Sasha (who married in to all this wealth and doesn't understand why a family dinner needs a themed tablescape). A fun, escapist, read-it-in-one-go book, perfect for a long flight or a day in the sunshine.


'It's the novel Jane Austen would have written . . . if Jane Austen lived in Brooklyn Heights in the 21st century'
 New York Times

'Hilarious and poignant' Miranda Cowley Heller, author of The Paper Palace

'The smartest and most deliciously fun novel I've read in ages' Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians

'An absorbing, acutely observed novel about class, money and love' Nick Hornby, author of High Fidelity

'Filled with warmth and light. I was moved, engaged, inspired and charmed' Daisy Buchanan, author of Insatiable

'Wise, emotionally honest and such fun' Helen Fielding, author of Bridget Jones Diary

'Jenny Jackson turns this story of super-rich people living frustrated lives in Brooklyn into a compelling and thoughtful look at what it means to have very little agency in your own life. An excellent read' Stylist

'Killer debut about class, love and money' Grazia
