The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. by Adelle Waldman, about a self-absorbed writer living in New York City, Nate Piven. It touches on the complications of dating in NYC and the psyche of "the modern man."
Gruner Veltliner, from Austria, it's refreshing, but still has some body, with notes of stone fruit and green apple. It can also be a little peppery. Try it with roasted chicken, salmon, or sushi.
