Product Details


“Rebeck flawlessly, uproariously captures what it means to covet that elusive, transformative, deluxe apartment in the sky.”
USA Today

“Tina is the type of heroine readers wish for; a little unsure of her place in the world yet well-intentioned. At various turns compelling, yet just a little bit devious…Make sure to add this book to your reading list this year.”
Sacramento Book Review

“Greed, sibling rivalry and generational dysfunction are at the heart of this clever, entertaining exploration of family dynamics…. An unusual and inventive adventure…The stories in this building are poignant, tragic and complex, Tina the catalyst for shocking revelations and dark secrets, for poisonous relationships and unexpected forgiveness. Whether money and property can purchase happiness or not, Tina is the beneficiary of her experience, discovering the value of integrity and the price of belonging in the world.”
—Curled Up with a Good Book,

“The scenes are impeccably handled and laughs abound.”

“Theresa Rebeck upends the fairy tale of New York privilege in this giddy, entertaining satire, set in an enchanted castle peopled with pampered royals, urban witches, deposed princes and one very wily damsel.  As she did so deftly in Three Girls and Their Brother, Rebeck makes hilarious use of our baser instincts and obsessions.”
—Susanna Sonnenberg
“Theresa Rebeck wonderfully captures the not-so-uncommon wars that can erupt when a luxurious old apartment passes from one generation to another.  Eccentric characters, a building rich with lore, and a high stakes tale set in the world of Manhattan real estate makes the story more real than real!”
—Barbara Corcoran
“In New York City, real estate isn’t just part of the story, it is the story. Reading this book is like getting buzzed into an exclusive world, where sons with the arrogant confidence of the very rich collide with accidental wealth mixed with a pinch of eccentricity. The result is funny and insightful–believe it or not, characters like this exist in the real world too!”
—Jennifer Gould Keil, New York Post columnist

“A deliciously wicked satire.”
People (4 out of 4 stars)
“A wickedly enjoyable exposé of modern celebrity.”
Kirkus (starred review)
“A fizzy satire of celeb-obsessed NYC about flame-haired teenage sisters who get photographed for The New Yorker and soon become megastars.”
Entertainment Weekly (A-)
Three Girls and Their Brother is pointed and funny, an entertaining, cautionary story about the powerful and the preyed upon.”
Boston Globe
“In her funny and well-observed first novel, award-winning Broadway playwright Rebeck (Omnium Gatherum; Mauritius) weighs in on the peculiarity and absurdity of fame in modern America.”
