Synopsis

In the spirit of Bonfire of the Vanities and American Psycho, Henry Sutton’s new novel brilliantly depicts the culture of irresponsible entitlement that led to the current economic malaise.
 
It’s 2008 and Matt Freeman is living in London, desperately trying to keep a toehold in the financial world by running a shadow banking business with contacts in North Korea and Iran. He is furious with the emptiness and impermanence of twenty-first century life but addicted to the allure of luxury possessions—cars, watches, bespoke suits. And meanwhile, there is the question of why the women in Matt Freeman’s life seem to disappear.
 
Perfectly capturing one of the world’s financial capitals at a crucial moment, poised between extravagant excess and a terrifying recession, Get Me Out of Here is a satirical novel about the rage and desperation that come with the expectation of money for nothing. By turns darkly comic and unnerving, Sutton’s novel possesses a moral authority rare in contemporary fiction.
