Silver Birch Press is pleased to announce the upcoming publication of DEBT, a novel by Rachel Carey. This book is The Bonfires of the Vanities 20+ years later — and, in this publishers opinion, just as great a read!

BACK COVER BLURB:┬áLillian Fitzgerald has gone a hundred thousand dollars into student loan debt for a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing. To buy time to salvage her ambitious but depressing thesis novel, she accepts a part-time job doing SAT tutoring for Calvin Bolt, whose father Henry owns Bolt Bank — the company that services her student loans. Lillian soon discovers that dangerous secrets underlie the wealth and power of the Bolt family, secrets that could launch Lillian onto the New York Times bestseller list… if she manages to survive long enough to write about them. In this sharp and fast-paced satire of New York during the 2008 financial meltdown, it turns out that everyone — even all-powerful billionaire Henry Bolt — is in somebody’s debt.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:┬áRachel Carey is a writer and filmmaker. She received an MFA in Film Directing from NYU, a M.Ed. from Harvard, and a BA in English from Yale. She currently teaches college film classes — and lives with her husband and daughter in New Jersey. Rachel is still paying back her student loans — and has dedicated her novel to the Sallie Mae Corporation.

Silver Birch Press will publish Debt by Rachel Carey in November 2012.
