Bestselling novelist Meg Wolitzer is the author of nine novels including The Ten-Year Nap and This Is Your Life, which was made into the Nora Ephron film This Is My Life. Her latest book, The Interestings, spans more than thirty years in the lives of a six friends who meet at a summer camp in the 70s. It explores what becomes of early talent; the roles that art, money and envy can play in close friendships and how the past becomes increasingly real as we grow older.
[The Interestings] vision and
sweep place it among the ranks of books like Jonathan Franzens Freedom and Jeffrey Eugenides The Marriage Plot. With this book, [Wolitzer] has surpassed herself."
