「Straub以熱情與同理心書寫她的角色…,一本有趣的小說,有技巧又深思熟慮。」
--普立茲獎得主,《紐約時報》書評/角谷美智子

Elizabeth, Andrew和Zoe是大學時代的樂團死黨,他們看著彼此結了婚、買了房子、開創事業、養育下一代,努力地維持年輕歲月認同感的同時,他們也感到歲月不饒人的現實。

過去光輝的樂團歲月,Elizabeth總掛著一種冷笑,Andrew劈頭散髮老是不洗,而Zoe是個所有異性戀女人都想跟她上床的女同性戀。現在他們已年近50,Elizabeth是個房仲經紀人,Andrew因為祖上留了財產,還能在中年時維持著終日尋找人生目標的生活,而Zoe則開了間生意還算不錯的餐廳,且有自己的婚姻伴侶Jane。他們住在布魯克林經過改造的社區,彼此相距不遠,身上的行頭還算得來容易。但是當Zoe和Andrew的兒子Harry與Zoe和Jane的女兒Ruby睡在一起後,他們過去的秘密開始被解開,而這些秘密不只屬於他們三人,還有來自經歷人生起落的第四個團員。

Straub這本結合了智慧、洞察與幽默的小說,描述了關於鄰居與噪音、野心與歡愉、青春的熱情洋溢與中年面臨的震撼,然而事實是,我們的熱情,不管是對食物、友誼與音樂從來都沒有離開過,它們只是與我們一同成長與變化。

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
AN ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY BEST BOOK OF 2016 SO FAR

From the author of the New York Times bestseller The Vacationers, a smart, highly entertaining novel about a tight-knit group of friends from college— and what it means to finally grow up, well after adulthood has set in.

Friends and former college bandmates Elizabeth and Andrew and Zoe have watched one another marry, buy real estate, and start businesses and families, all while trying to hold on to the identities of their youth. But nothing ages them like having to suddenly pass the torch (of sexuality, independence, and the ineffable alchemy of cool) to their own offspring.

Back in the band's heyday, Elizabeth put on a snarl over her Midwestern smile, Andrew let his unwashed hair grow past his chin, and Zoe was the lesbian all the straight women wanted to sleep with. Now nearing fifty, they all live within shouting distance in the same neighborhood deep in gentrified Brooklyn, and the trappings of the adult world seem to have arrived with ease. But the summer that their children reach maturity (and start sleeping together), the fabric of the adult lives suddenly begins to unravel, and the secrets and revelations that are finally let loose—about themselves, and about the famous fourth band member who soared and fell without them—can never be reclaimed.

Straub packs wisdom and insight and humor together in a satisfying book about neighbors and nosiness, ambition and pleasure, the excitement of youth, the shock of middle age, and the fact that our passions—be they food, or friendship, or music—never go away, they just evolve and grow along with us.
