Brightness Falls Summary

Brightness Falls by Jay McInerney

Corrine Calloway is a young stockbroker on "Wall Street", her husband Russell an underpaid but ambitious publishing editor. The happily married couple head into New York's 1980s gold rush where prospects and money seem to be flying everywhere, and the best and the brightest vie with the worst and most craven for riches, fame and the love of beautiful people. But, the Calloways soon find out that what goes up must come crashing down, both on "Wall Street" and at home. "Brightness Falls" captures lives-in-the-making: men and women confronting their sudden middle-age with wit and low behaviour, fear and confusion, and, just occasionally, a little honesty and decency.

Brightness Falls Reviews

'A funny, self-mocking, sometimes brilliant portrait of Manhattan's young literary and Wall Street crowd, our latest Lost Generation McInerney's version of Thackeray's Vanity Fair' Time 'Smart, funny and brilliant' Independent 'McInerney has a gift for the simultaneous perception of the glamour and tawdriness of city life and the novel pulsates with his trademark sense of excitement about living in New York' Evening Standard 'It works greatly to McInerney's advantage - and our entertainment - that he is fascinated by what he flagellates this book rolls along to an ominous beat powerfully affecting' Independent
