Meg Wolitzer at the Horizon Theatre
New York Times Bestselling author Meg Wolitzer launches the paperback release of her acclaimed novel, THE INTERESTINGS, with a reading, discussion, book signing and benefit for Atlanta's Horizon Theatre.
THE INTERESTINGS is The "New York Times"-bestselling novel that has been called "genius" ("The Chicago Tribune"), "wonderful" ("Vanity Fair"), "ambitious" ("San Francisco Chronicle"), and a "page-turner" ("Cosmopolitan"), which "The New York Times Book Review "says is "among the ranks of books like Jonathan Franzen's "Freedom" and Jeffrey Eugenides "The Marriage Plot."
The summer that Nixon resigns, six teenagers at a summer camp for the arts become inseparable. Decades later the bond remains powerful, but so much else has changed. In THE INTERESTINGS, Wolitzer follows these characters from the height of youth through middle age, as their talents, fortunes, and degrees of satisfaction diverge.
The kind of creativity that is rewarded at age fifteen is not always enough to propel someone through life at age thirty; not everyone can sustain, in adulthood, what seemed so special in adolescence.
Wide in scope, ambitious, and populated by complex characters who come together and apart in a changing New York City, THE INTERESTINGS explores the meaning of talent; the nature of envy; the roles of class, art, money, and power; and how all of it can shift and tilt precipitously over the course of a friendship and a life.
