Veronica by Mary Gaitskill
My Christmas present from my husband this year was Veronica by Mary Gaitskill. It is beautifully written but not a book that I think a lot of my friends would enjoy. The narrator is a fashion model who views her success through the eyes of her friend, Veronica, who is dying of aids. The details of her modeling life are pretty sordid. It is a story of friendship.
