Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the bestselling author of Bright Lights, Big City and Brightness Falls comes a chronicle of a generation, as enacted by two men who represent all the passions and extremes of the class of 1969. Patrick Keane and Will Savage meet at prep school at the beginning of the explosive '60s. Over the next 30 years, they remain friends even as they pursue radically divergent destinies — and harbor secrets that defy rebellion and conformity.

Review:

"In this novel...(McInerney) means not only to offer a cross-sectional view of history, but to chronicle it." New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Although never heavy-handed or pretentious, McInerney touches on too many ideas and covers too much ground to be entirely successful at the task....Yet McInerney's intelligent prose is a pleasure to read, and bigger-than-life Will Savage is a memorable character." Booklist
