Further Lane: A Novel of the Hamptons

East Hampton, New York’s Old Money might shudder at the town’s nickname, ”Malibu East” — so dubbed for its pristine beaches and seasonal residents like Barbra Streisand and Demi Moore (two of many wittily etched celebrity cameos). But hatred of brazen lifestyle guru Hannah Cutting transcends class in Further Lane: A Novel of the Hamptons. So when her body washes ashore with a stake driven through ”her cold heart,” suspects abound — from a swami to the stars to Hannah’s Mount Everest-climbing nemesis. All must undergo the smart, deliciously satirical scrutiny of James Brady’s journalist narrator, whose cool impression of a ’90s-style Nick Carraway never falters. B+
