Publisher's Summary

London, 1990: Thatcher is on her way out, but Thatcherism is in full swing. Meanwhile David Bergmann, a young American working in a West End bar, is having a quarter-life crisis. He loves London, but he’s broke, he can’t get a girlfriend, and his flatmate is kicking him out.

Then he meets Sofia. On paper it’s a bad match - she’s a little older and a lot more sophisticated. But Bergmann is convinced that this fantastic woman can give him the purpose he lacks. All he needs to do is find the cash for a (hopefully) life-changing weekend with her in Paris. Thus Bergmann takes a radical step for a nice Jewish boy and moves into a squat. He’ll quickly learn that in Thatcherite England, free rent comes at a price.

"False Economies" is a funny and moving story about young love in London and the mistakes we make while trying to grow up.
