"I'm sick of all this pointless glamour," his glamorous girlfriend said. "I want a simple life." If only Connor McNab had listened. Now Philomena is off to California, allegedly on a fashion shoot, but he doesn't know where she is staying and a sinking feeling tells him that she might never come back. Connor's friend Jeremy Green is no help: he is the 'famous short-story writer' (which they both agree is an oxymoron) with an imminent publication date and some people holding his dog to ransom for reasons too Machiavellian to blurb. Connor's sister Brook, genius mathematician and anorexic, is too busy anguishing over Rwanda and Bosnia. His editor at Ciao Bella is only concerned about the suddenly elusive celebrity of the month. Thanks goodness for Pallas, a knock-out table dancer with a heart of gold.

Review quote

'A fast-paced, funny tale of true love gone wrong, full of McInerney's wit and style' Cosmopolitan 'A comedy of dysfunction, a satire on a world in which Narcissus is God. Yet, beneath its running gags and scathing one-liners, there lies a more urgent critique of America's vain glory' Daily Express 'Model Behaviour does for the nineties what Bright Lights, Big City did for the eighties. It is just as stylish, just as sharp, not quite as sad, but, if anything, funnier. New York, New York: so good he nailed it twice' Independent on Sunday 'Readable yet complex - and with more witty one-liners than you can shake a stick at' Daily Mirror
