Speedboat is by Renata Adler. A classic that burst on the scene in the 1970s and was unlike anything readers had experienced before. The story is told in fragments by Jen Fain, a dry witty journalist. While certainly not a "traditional" novel, this books gives readers a look at modern culture in all it's 1970s glory.
