Madeleine Henry: Breathe In, Cash Out
Madeleine Henry will be at Bookends & Beginnings to discuss her debut novel about young banking analyst Allegra Cobb, who plans to quit her Wall Street job the minute she gets her year-end bonus so she can finally pursue her yoga career full-time. But when she forms an intense relationship with the #InstaFamous guru who may hold the ticket to the life she’s always wanted--she's not sure if she'll be able to keep her sanity intact (and her chakras aligned) until bonus day. Says Jay McInerney, author of Bright Lights, Big City, "Madeleine Henry's Breathe In, Cash Out is a satirical romance, or, perhaps, a romantic satire, that improbably and hilariously juxtaposes the worlds of investment banking and yoga, sparing neither. Her portrait of the ambitious, sleep-deprived, paranoid peons of Wall Street, and their tyrannical masters, is brilliantly observed. This is a very stylish and entertaining debut."
Madeleine Henry worked at Goldman Sachs and in investment management in New York City. She graduated from Yale in 2014 where she wrote comedy for The Yale Record, America's oldest college humor magazine. Now working on her second novel, she shares more information about her life, writing, and yoga practice on @MadeleineHenryYoga.
