The After Party is set in River Oaks in 1957, and is full of Houston Landmarks (River Oaks Elementary, The Shamrock Hotel, The Avalon Diner). Cece's devotion to her friend childhood friend Joan is intense and usually causes complications in her own life. She knows she can count on two things. Joan will always be the center of attention, and Joan will disappear again. Cece's near obsession with Joan stirs up old secrets and old resentments. DiSclafani nails the complications of our oldest friendships in a novel as lush and rich as the Houston neighborhood where it takes place. - John

"In her stunning debut, Melissa Ginsburg has found in Houston what earlier noir writers found in Los Angeles: a dark netherworld of sin, violence, and blighted souls. Sunset City is sexy, disturbing, intense, and, at times, movingly poignant." Ron Rash, author of Serena and Above the Waterfall
