‘Montauk’ Marks Nicola Harrison’s Authorial Debut

Nicola Harrison

Montauk, Long Island, 1938. For three months, this humble fishing village will serve as the playground for New York’s wealthy elite — and Beatrice Bordeaux is already fantasizing about a reignited, passion-filled summer between her and her husband, Harry.

Instead, she is tasked with furthering his investment interest in Montauk as a resort destination — spending 12 weeks sequestered with the high society wives at The Montauk Manor, a 200-hundred room seaside hotel, while Harry pursues other interests in the city.

This is the backdrop

Originally from Hampshire, England, Harrison moved to California at age 14, going on to study literature at UCLA before earning her MFA in creative writing from Stony Brook University. She is a member of The Writers Room and has short stories published in The Southampton Review and Glimmer Train, as well as articles in Los Angeles Magazine and Orange Coast Magazine. She was the fashion and style staff writer for Forbes, and founded a personal styling business, Harrison Style.
