A warm, incisive new novel about the enduring bonds of marriage and friendship from the author of the instant New York Times bestseller The Nest.
Advance praise for Good Company:
Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney plumbs the depths of marriage, motherhood, and friendship with warmth and wit. I devoured it in one gulp! Treat yourself to some Good Company.”
Maria Semple, Author of Where’d You Go, Bernadette
With candor and humor, Good Company tackles big issues—the reckoning between artistic ambition and family life, the strange tension between honesty and loyalty, the way time’s inevitable passage affects friendships and romance and our sense of self. Once again, Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney has written a book you’ll stay up all night reading.
Rumaan Alam, Author of Leave the World Behind
Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney’s rich love story about friends who become family is generous and heartbreaking and true. I loved The Nest and I love Good Company even more.”
Jade Chang, Author of The Wangs vs. the World
This book is SMART. It breathes new life into topics such as love, marriage, parenting, friendship and that old chestnut, betrayal. Set in both an erudite theater-world Manhattan and Golden-hued Hollywood, Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney hits a bulls eye with every single scene. Good Company is brilliant company.
Elin Hilderbrand, Author of 28 SUMMERS
"What happens when one accidental discovery changes everything you believe about yourself and the people you love? Cynthia Sweeney's unforgettable characters are so real, so human, and such good company (pun intended) as they struggle with profound questions about the lines between loyalty and secrecy, self-interest and self-preservation—and in doing so, ask us to do the same. GOOD COMPANY is a beautifully nuanced meditation on marriage and friendship—their messiness and limitations, but also their boundless capacity for reinvention.”
Lori Gottlieb, Author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone
