This program is read by the author.

One night in New York City’s Chinatown, a woman is at a work reunion dinner with former colleagues when she excuses herself to buy a pack of cigarettes. On her way back, she runs into a former boyfriend. And then another. And . . . another. Nothing is quite what it seems as the city becomes awash with ghosts of heartbreaks past. 

What would normally pass for coincidence becomes something far stranger as the recently engaged Lola must contend not only with the viability of her current relationship but the fact that both her best friend and her former boss, a magazine editor turned mystical guru, might have an unhealthy investment in the outcome. Memories of the past swirl and converge in ways both comic and eerie, as Lola is forced to decide if she will surrender herself to the conspiring of one very contemporary cult.

Is it possible to have a happy ending in an age when the past is ever at your fingertips and sanity is for sale? With her gimlet eye, Sloane Crosley spins a wry literary fantasy that is equal parts must-listen and poignant portrayal of alienation.

Favorite Author

Sloane Crosley is my favorite author and Cult Classic was amazing! It had her charming, dark wit and interesting story line. Loved that she was the narrator also.

Riveting, poignant, hilarious, and insightful

I found myself making notes every few minutes, as this book is so full of clever, unique observations about human behavioral quirks, relationships, and the odd little moments in life that we all have witnessed but never really had the words to capture in amber the way Sloane Crosley has the singular capability of doing.

The real intrigue of the novel doesn't pick up right away, but the beginning takes its time to setup the main character and her personality and history, deepening your connection in preparation for what's in store. it never feels dragging, since every moment is so witty and funny and full of realism.

even the surreal elements have a groundedness that makes them believable. overall such a well crafted and compelling story, I will be recommending it to all my friends who are aware of themselves and navigating a relationship, whether single or not, there is lots to take away here.
