Meg Wolitzer: "The Interestings"
Few people who show early talent go on to achieve stellar success. But their lives can be rich and wonderful nonetheless. That's one of the messages of a new novel that spans four decades. It all begins when six teenagers become friends at an artsy summer camp in New England's Berkshire Mountains. It's the summer that President Richard Nixon resigns and the teens declare themselves special. The future awaits them with all the promises and pitfalls a fully lived life has to offer. From the '70s to the present, the zeitgeist of each decade is woven into the story. A novel about love, luck, tragedy and talent.
author of several novels, including "The Ten-Year Nap" and "The Uncoupling."
