Synopsis

Discover the generation-defining American novel from the author of The Wife

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.

'A truly great novel about friendship, and how it deepens and changes over the years' David Sedaris, author of Me Talk Pretty One Day
