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
"Wolitzer has a knack for homing in on the kind of pretension-puncturing details that can sum up a minor character in a single sentence"
Portrait
Meg Wolitzer
Zitat
"Like Virginia Woolf in The Waves, Meg Wolitzer gives us the full picture here, charting her characters' lives from the self-dramatizing of adolescence, through the resignation of middle age, to the attainment of a wisdom that holds all the intensities of life in a single, sustained chord, much like this book itself. 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 "Ambitious and involving, capturing the zeitgeist of the liberal intelligentsia of the era." Kirkus, starred review "Absorbing and immensely likeable" -- Jess Sauer Nylon "[Wolitzer] is a keen observer of human relationships and an adept creator of recognisable characters." -- Adam Langer Washington Post "Sprawling, engaging" -- Jesse Dorris Time
