Ludovica and Lorenzo live in Rome. She works in her family's bookstore, and he's a filmmaker-or, rather, a ofilmmakero- so far, all he's produced is one pretentious short film that even his friends don't take seriously. But somehow, he gets a scholarship to Columbia University, and the couple decide to head to New York-specifically, to Williamsburg- the promised land.

They soon fall in with a group of Italian expats-all of them with artistic ambitions and the family money to support those ambitions indefinitely. There's Nicolino, the playboy; Marcello, the aspiring rapper; Sergio, the literary scout; and a handful of others. These languidly ambitious men and women will come together and fall apart, but can they escape their fates? Can anyone?

In Class , Francesco Pacifico gives a grand, subversive, formally ambitious social novel that bridges Italy and America, high and low, money and art. A novel that channels Virginia Woolf and Kanye West, Henry Miller and Lil' Wayne, Class is an unforgettable, mordantly funny account of Italians chasing the American dream.
