Liza Davis is looking for something. Looking for hope, for meaning. For her sister, or her best friend. Maybe she's even looking for herself.

In Silly Little Rich Girl, Jimmy Gleacher introduces a fascinating and contradictory heroine. Privileged, famous, beautiful...Liza seems destined for a successful career on Wall Street until a series of events loosens her grip on reality and sends her on a cross-country quest. From New York to Florida to Seattle, she visits the fringes of the underworld, gets an hour's worth of fifteen minutes of fame, falls in love for the first time, and believes her obsession with finding her sibling is sisterly love.

Liza's journey is a classic road trip with a postmodern spin. Through Liza, Gleacher takes on American popular culture, from the sacred to the profane. Reality television, politicians, and evangelical Christians are just a few of Gleacher's targets in this incisive sophomore novel.

"Gleacher doesn't get the attention he deserves. He's a smart, funny writer with a fresh narrative voice. Silly Little Rich Girl is a quirky, heartfelt story, an adventurous newfangled tour of America's pop culture, microcelebrity, and mental illness." - James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces

"A refreshing and creative novel that can be read in one sitting. Jimmy Gleacher has delivered an original piece of writing. He will make you laugh, too." - Jonathan Lynn, BBC, Broadway and Hollywood Legend
