      Life for Louise, Lavina and their social groups, revolves around crack-cocaine, alcohol, 4am finishes, money and constant posing for their social media profiles. In a way, no one in this book is a ‘social creature’ but merely playing to the disguise of being one. Every night is more of the same thing.   The original Social Creature, which had nothing to do with Social Creature, was a novel that I wrote when I was about 19 that wasn’t very good.

In most cases, the reviews are necessarily limited to those that were available to us ahead of publication. If you are the publisher or author of this book and feel that. These are the questions that Tara Isabella Burton raises in her effervescent debut, Social Creature, which re-locates the Ripley story to the same money-drenched Manhattan Anna Delvey manipulated.

In marketing speak, Burton’s novel is Patricia Highsmith-meets- Gossip Girl, a mashup of a long con and the demimonde.

Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton belongs in that category. Louise is an ordinary girl trying to make ends meet, struggling with multiple jobs when she meets rich and spoiled Lavinia.

Soon they develop a deep bond and Louise is pulled into the dazzling glamorous lifestyle of parties, drinking and drugs.Social Creature was a spur-of-the-moment library grab, because I remembered Sarah's strong reaction to the book last year. It stuck in my mind as one I had to check out.

And everything Sarah said was right: I almost put this down several times, but it took turns that kept me reading and was truly a messed up story. It reminded me of a recent story in The Cut that I vaguely followed and that.
