The Interestings

Whatever became of the most talented people you once knew?
On a warm summer night in 1974, six teenagers play at being cool. They smoke pot, drink vodka, share their dreams and vow always to be interesting.
Decades later, aspiring actress Jules has resigned herself to a more practical occupation; Cathy has stopped dancing; Jonah has laid down his guitar and Goodman has disappeared. Only Ethan and Ash, now married, have remained true to their adolescent dreams and have become shockingly successful too. As the group's fortunes tilt precipitously, their friendships are put under the ultimate strain of envy and crushing disappointment.
'The wit, intelligence and deep feeling of Wolitzer's writing are extraordinary and The Interestings brings her achievement, already so steadfast and remarkable, to an even higher level' Jeffrey Eugenides
Rezension
"This is a wonderful book. Intelligent and subtle, it is exquisitely written with enormous warmth and depth of emotion... But what makes The Interestings exceptional is the precision and elegance of Wolitzer's writing... This should be the novel to make Wolitzer a household name here too" Kate Mosse The Times
Portrait

Meg Wolitzer is the author of several acclaimed novels, most recently The Uncoupling ('tingles with playfulness and wicked observation' Independent) and The Wife ('has you howling with recognition' Allison Pearson), The Position ('one of the best and most human books I've read all year' Erica Wagner) and The Ten-Year Nap ('as incisive and pitiless and clear-eyed a chronicler of female-male tandems as Philip Roth or John Updike' Chicago Tribune). She is married with two sons and lives in New York City.

Zitat
"The wit, intelligence and deep feeling of Wolitzer's writing are extraordinary and The Interestings brings her achievement, already so steadfast and remarkable, to an even higher level." -- JEFFREY EUGENIDES "This is a wonderful book. Intelligent and subtle, it is exquisitely written with enormous warmth and depth of emotion. Wolitzer is an affectionate and clear-sighted observer of human nature" -- Kate Mosse The Times "Meg Wolitzer proves brilliant at writing normal, unremarkable lives, investing them with just as much detailed attention and humane humour as the lives of the beautiful, the rich and the famous. [She] also pulls off an impressive balancing act, sometimes inhabiting the moment-to-moment present of her characters, and at others times writing with a droll hindsight" -- Holly Williams Independent on Sunday "Wolitzer is a writer of prodigious energy and detail, with the knack for comic-satirical perceptions of character and culture" -- Rachel Cusk Guardian "There are certain authors whose new book you look forward to as though you were about to catch up on news from an old friend. And there are authors whose new book you fall on greedily because you know it will be tartly delicious and satisfy a hunger you didn't know you had till you read them for the first time. For me, Meg Wolitzer has long been in both of those categories. The Interestings is full of Wolitzer's trademark pleasures. I love her fearlessness in tackling everything . She has a sly wit and verbal brio which can even make clinical depression entertaining" -- Allison Pearson Daily Telegraph
