In The Good Life, Jay McInerney unveils a story of love,
family, conflicting desires, and catastrophic loss in his most
powerfully searing work thus far.Clinging to a semiprecarious
existence in TriBeCa, Corrine and Russell Calloway have survived a
separation and are wonderstruck by young twins whose provenance is
nothing less than miraculous. Several miles uptown and perched near
the top of the Upper East Side's social register, Luke McGavock has
postponed his accumulation of wealth in an attempt to recover the
sense of purpose now lacking in a life that often gives him pause.
But on a September morning, brightness falls horribly from the sky,
and people worlds apart suddenly find themselves working side by
side at the devastated site.Wise, surprising, and, ultimately,
heart-stoppingly redemptive, The Good Life captures lives
that allow us to see-through personal, social, and moral
complexity-more clearly into the heart of things.
