Kezia, Nathaniel, and Victor are reunited for the extravagant wedding of a college friend. Now at the tail end of their twenties, they arrive completely absorbed in their own lives—Kezia the second-in-command to a madwoman jewelry designer; Nathaniel the former literary cool kid, selling his wares in Hollywood; and the Victor, just fired from a middling search engine. They soon slip back into old roles: Victor loves Kezia. Kezia loves Nathaniel. Nathaniel loves Nathaniel.

A story about a valuable necklace that disappeared during the Nazi occupation of France leads Kezia, Nathaniel, and Victor on an adventure from Miami to New York and LA to Paris and across France until they converge at the estate of Guy de Maupassant, author of the classic short story “The Necklace.”

The Clasp, Crosley’s first novel, is a story of friends struggling to fit together now that their lives haven’t gone as planned, and of how to separate the real from the fake.

Crosley is the author of The New York Times bestselling essay collections, I Was Told There’d Be CakeHow Did You Get This Number, and the e-book Up The Down Volcano. She has been a frequent contributor to The New York TimesThe Village VoiceThe New York Observer, and is currently a contributing editor at Interview Magazine. Book signing to follow.
