Description

With the publication of Bright Lights, Big City in 1984, Jay McInerney became a literary sensation, heralded as the voice of a generation. The novel follows a young man, living in Manhattan as if he owned it, through nightclubs, fashion shows, editorial offices, and loft parties as he attempts to outstrip mortality and the recurring approach of dawn. With nothing but goodwill, controlled substances, and wit to sustain him in this anti-quest, he runs until he reaches his reckoning point, where he is forced to acknowledge loss and, possibly, to rediscover his better instincts. This remarkable novel of youth and New York remains one of the most beloved, imitated, and iconic novels in America.

Customer Reviews

That's more like it

Finished "The Year of Magical Thinking" just before reading this. Both books weave loss in between the threads of an everyday life, but "Bright Lights, Big City" does it so much more artfully and truthfully that I'm ashamed to even say I read the other one.

Save the best for last, I suppose.
