Not new but jolly good.
I am Charlotte Simmons by Tom Wolfe. Perfect holiday reading.

It's brilliant isn't it. Apparently he wrote it after being really shocked to find out about the "celebrations" for spring break. The characters were very compelling I thought, you really cared about what happened to them in the end.

Cornsilk amazon says its about

Charlotte leaves her small Blue Ridge Mountain town believing that as a freshman at Dupont University she will expand her mind, increase her mental acuity. She is both brilliant and beautiful. But rather than finding young people with similar lofty goals she meets wealthy, blase students much more interested in sex, beer, and drugs.
