Bright, Precious Days by Jay McInerney

Bright, Precious DaysBright, Precious Days by Jay McInerney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have not read the two books that precede this one (Brightness Falls and The Good Life) tracking the lives and marriage of Corrine and Russell Galloway. The story covers their life post 9/11 living and working in New York City. Changes are brewing. The economy is headed for a huge fall and it carries huge consequences for their careers and marriage. There is an assortment of interesting characters, friends, lovers, business and literary associates that move the story along. The book was about 400 pages and I read it avidly cover to cover. The focus of the novel is on the state of the Galloway marriage which at times was as unstable as the Wall Street Market in 2007-2009. Would love to see a screen version of this book...
