New York is slipping from Cleos grasp. Sure, shes at a different party every other night, but she barely knows anyone. Her student visa is running out, and she doesnt even have money for cigarettes. But then she meets Frank. Twenty years older, Franks life is full of all the success and excess that Cleos lacks. He offers her the chance to be happy, the freedom to paint, and the opportunity to apply for a green card. She offers him a life imbued with beauty and art-and, hopefully, a reason to cut back on his drinking. He is everything she needs right now. Cleo and Frank run head-first into a romance that neither of them can quite keep up with. It reshapes their lives and the lives of those around them, whether thats Cleos best friend struggling to embrace his gender identity in the wake of her marriage, or Franks financially dependent sister arranging sugar daddy dates after being cut off. Ultimately, this chance meeting between two strangers outside of a New Years Eve party changes everything, for better or worse.

Cleopatra and Frankenstein is an astounding and painfully relatable debut novel about the spontaneous decisions that shape our entire lives and those imperfect relationships born of unexpectedly perfect evenings.
