Product description


Gossip Girl meets The Secret History...Joukovsky's ability to both skewer and sympathize with her characters would impress Edith Wharton herself.

-- "Vulture"

The Portrait of a Mirror is a wickedly fun debut--a novel that floats seamlessly between Ovid and dive bars, and that shows us the perils of getting exactly what we want.

-- "Grant Ginder, author of The People We Hate at the Wedding"

[A] modern retelling of the myth of Narcissus.

-- "Brit + Co"

An intellectually dazzling, deliciously wicked novel about love, art, illusion, and modernity--not to mention a pitch-perfect satire of New York's beautiful people.

-- "Emily Temple, author of The Lightness"

Clever and witty and intricate...[a] richly-layered portrait of two couples caught at a crossroads.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

In a wickedly fun debut you won't be able to put down, Joukovsky reinvents the myth of Narcissus for modern times.

-- "Veranda Magazine"

Part sex comedy, part satire about the world's most hatable people. Joukovsky is unsparing--and hilarious--on the topics of marriage, success, and the self-absorption of the privileged class.

-- "Erin Somers, author of Stay Up with Hugo Best"

This contemporary novel of manners is so sly and sharp and well-observed, so densely witty and full of piercing offhand observation...a not-quite-love story about deceptive infatuation.

-- "Jia Tolentino, New York Times bestselling author"

This delightful, perfectly rendered novel is filled with gossip and charged exchanges, bad decisions made by rich people, but also some pretty interesting questions about art and value...I was beyond charmed.

-- "Literary Hub"

Two well off couples' Iives intertwine in this hilarious reinvention of the myth of Narcissus...and they're all too immersed in desire to know what they want.

-- "She Reads"

Reviewed in the United States on 1 June 2021
A stunning debut for an author who has the writing skills necessary to delight readers for decades to come. Portrait skewers a subset of the population who largely deserves it in a rich, layered look into the ridiculous lives of two well heeled couples. Book of the summer? Book of the summer!
