Phillip's best friends are richer than he is. They're more successful. Worst of all, they give fabulous presents: a handmade corkscrew from Venice, an irritatingly perfect jade carving, impossible-to-get soccer tickets. These are gifts that hurt a man's pride. And they can never be matched. Which doesn't mean Phillip won't try ... Outrageously funny and deftly observed, The Gift delights in the comically destructive forces of envy and desire that drive us all.
