Bright, precious days

Mcinerney, Jay2016
Books, Manuscripts
It's 2008 and Russell and Corrine Calloway have spent half their lives in the bright lights of New York. Obama and Clinton are fighting for leadership and the collapse of Lehman Brothers looms. Meanwhile, Russell is running his own publishing company, and clinging to their downtown loft; Corrine manages a charity, and is desperate to move somewhere with more space for their twins. Although they try to forget each other's past indiscretions, when Jeff Pierce's posthumous novel garners a new cult following, the memory of their friend begins to haunt the couple, and their increasingly unstable marriage is not helped by the unexpected reappearance of Corrine's former lover. Acutely observed and brilliantly told, Bright, Precious Days dissects the moral complexities of relationships - the mistakes we make and love's ability to adapt and survive them - confirming McInerney as a great chronicler of our life and times.
