Product description

An as new copy of the 2007 paperback edition, bright clean and unmarked. Synopsis. Ten years on from Brightness Falls, Russell Calloway is still a literary editor although in a diminished capacity; his wife, Corrine, has sacrificed her career to watch anxiously over their children. Across town Luke McGavock, a wealthy ex-investment banker, is taking a sabbatical from making money, struggling to reconnect with his socially resplendent wife, Sasha, and their angst-ridden teenage daughter, Ashley. These two Manhattan families are teetering on the brink of change when 9/11 happens. The "Good Life" explores through the lens of catastrophe that territory between hope and despair, love and loss, regret and fulfilment. But, ultimately, this is Jay McInerney doing what he does best, presenting us with the life of New York City in all its moral complexity. : Review: `A tender analysis of the slow disintegration of two young : families . Moving, thoughtful and altogether surprising' -- Arena: `His best book since Bright Lights, Big City . a very subtle, : incredibly insightful, heartbreaking story' -- James Frey: `Humane and emotionally gripping' : -- Daily Mail: `McInerney writes with compassion and wit and is never better than : when observing the social mores of his contemporaries' -- Tatler
