Description:
Made my heart beat faster --Richard Ford, GuardianAssured, funny and thoughtful --Daily MailHere is an incredibly readable, intelligent, incisive portrait of a particular kind of American family. Dee takes us inside the world of what desire for wealth can do, and cannot do, both for the self, the soul, and the family. Told with admirable conciseness and yet with great breadth, the reader is swept along, watching the complications of such desire unfold. --Elizabeth Strout, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Olive Ketteridge The subjects of money and class are seldom tackled head on by our best literary minds, which is one of the reasons that Jonathan Dee's The Privileges is such an important and compelling work. The Privileges is a pitch perfect evocation of a particular strata of New York society as well as a moving meditation on family and romantic love. The tour de force first chapter alone is worth the price of admission.--Jay McInerney The Privileges is a transfixing account of the rise and rise of a charmed couple, Adam and Cynthia Morey, who forge their way up Manhattan's social ranks with their kids, April and Jonas, in tow. Composed in Dee's typically elegant style - gorgeous, winding sentences in which high diction and low brush up against each other.-- LA Times Dee has written an electric, funny, tragic, loving tale of a family scaling the heights of finance in New York City... Dee is a writer of skill and emotional depth... The Privileges should catapult him to darling status - deservedly.-- Time Out ***** The Privileges is an intimate portrait of a wealthy family that gradually becomes an indictment of an entire social class and historical moment, while also providing a window onto some recent, and peculiarly American, forms of decadence. Jonathan Dee is at once an acerbic social critic, an elegant stylist, and a shrewd observer of the human comedy.-- Tom Perrotta The Privileges is verbally brilliant, intellectually astute and intricately knowing. It is also very funny and a great, great pleasure to read. Jonathan Dee is a wonderful writer.-- Richard Ford Striking the right note for our times, Dee precisely captures the unethical world of a Manhattan hedge-fund manager, his disaffected daughter, and the glittering dangers of success.-- Daily Beast Jonathan Franzen has already commended this novel, which anatomises 20 years of a marriage. It opens with a bravura description of a wedding in Pittsburgh, the bride and groom hailing from very different backgrounds. Dee moves from scene to scene like a cinematographer, capturing the essence of a character in a telling glimpse.-- Financial Times, FICTION HIGHLIGHTS OF 2010 The Privileges is shrewdly realistic... captivating.-- Salon.com Lucidly written and with a pitch-perfect ear both for contemporary mores and dialogue, The Privileges is entertaining and morally ambiguous. --The Economist Jonathan Dee's scintillating fifth novel, The Privileges, tells the story of a golden couple, Adam and Cynthia Morey, who rise swiftly from modest Midwestern circumstances to immense wealth in New York. The book opens at their wedding in Pittsburgh, a scene that's a tour de force of shifting points of view, rendered with artistry and control I haven't seen since Ann Patchett's Bel Canto. --Washington Post Lucidly written and with a pitch-perfect ear both for contemporary mores and dialogue, The Privileges is entertaining - and morally ambiguous. --The EconomistMr. Dee has given us a cunning, seductive novel about the people we thought we d all agreed to hate. His case study of American mega-wealth is delicious page by page and masterly in its balancing of sympathy and critical distance. --Jonathan FranzenDee is graceful; articulate and perceptive, and often hilariously funny... full of elegance, vitality and complexity. --New York Times --Daily MailAssured, funny and thoughtful --Daily Mail
