The Emperor's Children (Large Print) (Large Print Press)

The Emperor's Children (Large Print) (Large Print Press) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From a writer of near-miraculous perfection (The New York Times Book Review) and a literary intelligence far surpassing most other writers of her generation (San Francisco Chronicle), The Emperor's Children is a dazzling, masterful novel about the intersections in the lives of three friends, now on the cusp of their thirties, making their way--and not--in New York City.

There is beautiful, sophisticated Marina Thwaite--an It girl finishing her first book; the daughter of Murray Thwaite, celebrated intellectual and journalist--and her two closest friends from Brown, Danielle, a quietly appealing television producer, and Julius, a cash-strapped freelance critic. The delicious complications that arise among them become dangerous when Murray's nephew, Frederick Bootie Tubb, an idealistic college dropout determined to make his mark, comes to town. As the skies darken, it is Bootie's unexpected decisions--and their stunning, heartbreaking outcome--that will change each of their lives forever.

A richly drawn, brilliantly observed novel of fate and fortune--of innocence and experience, seduction and self-invention; of ambition, including literary ambition; of glamour, disaster, and promise--The Emperor's Children is a tour de force that brings to life a city, a generation, and the way we live in this moment.
