Welcome to Yesterday is a novel as electric and haunting as the city that is its backdrop. Stylish and razro-sharp, it skillfully weaves together a twisted murder mystery, a delicate love story, an evisceration of celebrity culture, and an unforgettable evocation of place and time: Manhattan at the dawn of the twenty-first century.
When Leon Koch, a young reporter at New York’s most powerful gossip column, finds himself at the center of a murder scandal, he must race to uncover the truth before he is fired or winds up in jail — or worse, dead.
Striking the perfect balance of incisive prose and biting satire, Welcome to Yesterday offers readers an insider’s glimpse into the world of celebrity journalism with the authority that only former New York Post “Page Six” columnist Ian Spiegelman can deliver.
“Welcome to Yesterday often recalls the fiction of Raymond Chandler, Ernest Hemingway and Joan Didion, but Spiegelman builds on those forebears to create something entirely new.” —Time Out New York
“Spiegelman nails the frenetic, drug-fueled, celebrity-nightlife scene with crackling dialogue and go-for-the-jugular cyncism.” —Booklist
“Welcome to Yesterday is dark, whip-smart, and downright fun. The dialogue bites like sharpened teeth and the characters won’t leave your head.” –Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Fate
