Press for Royal Blue

 

“Darkly funny”
– Chicago Tribune

“…Reminiscent of early Francoise Sagan – evocative and surprisingly funny…”
– The London Times Literary Supplement

“Cynics will want to knock it, considering the pedigree it comes from, but that will be tough because Royal Blue’s version of a bad and privileged
childhood is funny, fetching, and full of gorgeous writing with a deep, tugging undercurrent of melancholy. Its intimate rendering of wealth without
cliché is a triumph-imagine Evelyn Waugh rewriting Eloise. For a first novel, what’s most remarkable is that there’s not a bum sentence in the entire thing.”
-Bret Easton Ellis American Psycho

 “Oxenberg depicts in exquisite detail the grotesque side of privilege.”
-Dominick Dunne A Season in Purgatory

 “This book will curl your hair, with humor, tragedy and modern despair.”
-Eve Babitz Black Swans

“This story is full of zest and humor, but the pain borne by the increasingly streetwise
heroine permeates every page. 
I think the book is excellent: very compelling and very well written.”
-Hugo Vickers Cecil Beaton: A Biography

 “Christina Oxenberg is the best writer alive.”
-Tracy Davis My Husband Ran Off With the Nanny & God Do I Miss Her
