The Last of the Savages Summary

The Last of the Savages by Jay McInerney

When staid Patrick Keane meets his roommate at a New England boarding-school, a strange, enduring friendship of extremes is forged. For Will Savage, privileged white son of the Mississippi Delta, has embraced black soul music and adopted its raw, searing anthems as his own. Spanning three decades from the turbulent sixties to the nineties, The Last of the Savages is a profound exploration of interracial love, music, family, honour and friendship.

The Last of the Savages Reviews

'His best work to date' Kate Saunders, Sunday Express 'Giving Scott Fitzgerald's fictional world a modern make-over increasingly engages Jay McInerney's energies as a novelist Like Fitzgerald, he is enthralled by the casualties of affluence, the evanescent good times, the allure of glamour - especially metropolitan chic - and the disenchantment it inexorably brings in its wake' Peter Kemp, Sunday Times 'Nothing less than three decades of Stateside history, in which the changing image of America is embodied in the existential shape-shifting of the main characters' John Walsh, Independent 'An accomplished, courageous novel, beautifully constructed, able to span three decades with ease' Literary Review
