Overview

Greed. Envy. Sex. Property. In her subversively funny and genuinely moving new novel, Jane Smiley nails down several American obsessions with the expertise of a master carpenter. Forthright, likable Joe Stratford is the kind of local businessman everybody trusts, for good reason. But it�s 1982, and even in Joe�s small town, values are in upheaval: not just property values, either. Enter Marcus Burns, a would-be master of the universe whose years with the IRS have taught him which rules are meant to be broken. Before long he and Joe are new best friends�and partners in an investment venture so complex that no one may ever understand it. Add to this Joe�s roller coaster affair with his mentor�s married daughter. The result is as suspenseful and entertaining as any of Jane Smiley�s fiction.
