Pick up the latest book by Kimberley Tait '01, Fake Plastic Love, and join some alumni for a book club meeting!
This book tells the story of two Dartmouth students who become friends, and then move to New York City upon graduation: one becomes an investment banker, the other a lifestyle blogger. Their new lives become full of cocktail parties, high ambition and fake "plastic". The book is initially set on the campus of Dartmouth, and paints pictures of canoeing on the Connecticut River, ice skating on Occom Pond, and taking part in First Year Trips. These details capture the Dartmouth "bubble" we only soon recognize after leaving campus.
