From the writer whose first novel, 'Bright Lights, Big City', defined a generation comes a collection of stories drawn from his nearly three-decade career - Whether set in New England, Los Angeles, New York, or the South, they unveil the manic flux of our society as they capture various stages of adulthood: a young man confronting the class system at a summer resort; a young woman holed up in a remote cabin while her boyfriend campaigns for the highest office; a couple whose experiments in sexuality cross every line; a doctor who treats convicts and is coming to terms with his own criminal past; a youthful socialite returning home to nurse her mother; a family celebrating the holidays while mired in loss; and more. A manifold exploration of delusion, experience, and transformation, these stories display a preeminent writer at the very top of his form.
