In conversation with Lexy Bloom

“A delicious new Gilded Age family drama—almost a satire—set in the leafy enclaves of Brooklyn Heights” (Vogue), Jenny Jackson’s Pineapple Street tells the story of three women navigating the shoals of forbidden love, gender expectations, family money, and too much tennis. A New York Times bestseller and a Good Morning America Book Club Pick, it was named a best book of 2023 by numerous publications and media outlets, including Time, NPR, Town & Country, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and the BBC. A vice president and executive editor at Alfred A. Knopf, Jackson is a graduate of Williams College and the Columbia Publishing Course.

Lexy Bloom is Editorial Director at Knopf Cooks and Senior Editor at Alfred A. Knopf, where she works with writers such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Haruki Murakami, Orhan Pamuk, Deb Perelman, Hetty McKinnon, Bill Buford, and many more
