en Limba Engleză Paperback – 08 Sep 2016
Corrine Calloway is a young stockbroker on Wall Street, her husband Russell an underpaid but ambitious publishing editor. The happily married couple head into New York's 1980s gold rush, awash with prospects and promise, where the best and brightest vie with the worst and most craven for riches, fame and the love of beautiful people. But the Calloways soon discover that what goes up must come crashing down, both on Wall Street and at home. Brightness Falls captures lives-in-the-making: men and women confronting adulthood with wit and low behaviour, fear and confusion, and, just occasionally, a little honesty and decency.

Notă biografică

Jay McInerney came to prominence in 1984 with his first novel Bright Lights, Big City. He is the author of six further novels: Ransom, Story of My Life, Brightness Falls, The Last of the Savages, Model Behaviour and The Good Life, two short story collections, and two non-fiction books on wine, one of which was the acclaimed A Hedonist in the Cellar. He writes a wine column for the Wall Street Journal and is a regular contributor to the Guardian, the New York Times Book Review and Corriere della Sera. He lives in Manhattan and Bridgehampton, New York.

Recenzii

'A funny, self-mocking, sometimes brilliant portrait of Manhattan's young literary and Wall Street crowd, our latest Lost Generation ... McInerney's version of Thackeray's Vanity Fair'
'Smart, funny and brilliant'
'McInerney has a gift for the simultaneous perception of the glamour and tawdriness of city life and the novel pulsates with his trademark sense of excitement about living in New York'
Humane and emotionally gripping
'It works greatly to McInerney's advantage - and our entertainment - that he is fascinated by what he flagellates ... this book rolls along to an ominous beat ... powerfully affecting'
McInerney writes with compassion and wit and is never better than when observing the social mores of his contemporaries
