Description
In Sigrid Nunez's fifth novel, a San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year, Ann Drayton and Georgette George meet as freshmen roommates at Barnard College in 1968. Brilliant and idealistic, Ann despises her own wealthy New England family, while Georgette, who comes from a depressed town in upstate New York, is mystified by Ann's romanticization of her underprivileged class. Nunez's portrait of their intimate and then estranged friendship is "an unflinching examination of justice, race, and political idealism that brings to mind Philip Roth's American Pastoral and the tenacious intelligence of Nadine Gordimer."NYTimes
