Description
<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF NOVEMBER’S BEST BOOKS BY <i>TIME, THE WASHINGTON POST,</i> AND <i>TOWN & COUNTRY</i></b><br><br><b>“A perfect novel for these times and all times, the single textual artifact from the pandemic era I would place in a time capsule as a representation of all that is good and true and beautiful about literature.”—Molly Young, The New York Times<br><br>Eight friends, one country house,</b> <b>and six months in isolation—a novel about love, friendship, family, and betrayal hailed as a “virtuoso performance” (<i>USA Today</i>)</b> <b>and</b> <b>“an homage to Chekhov with four romances and a finale that will break your heart” (<i>The Washington Post</i>)</b><br><br>In the rolling hills of upstate New York, a group of friends and friends-of-friends gathers in a country house to wait out the pandemic. Over the next six months, new friendships and romances will take hold, while old betrayals will emerge, forcing each character to reevaluate whom they love and what matters most. The unlikely cast of characters includes a Russian-born novelist; his Russian-born psychiatrist wife; their precocious child obsessed with K-pop; a struggling Indian American writer; a wildly successful Korean American app developer; a global dandy with three passports; a Southern flamethrower of an essayist; and a movie star, the Actor, whose arrival upsets the equilibrium of this chosen family. Both elegiac and very, very funny, <i>Our Country Friends</i> is the most ambitious book yet by the author of the beloved bestseller <i>Super Sad True Love Story</i>.

Over the next few months, new bonds of friendship and love will take hold, while old betrayals will emerge among this unlikely cast of characters, each richly drawn and achingly human: a Russian-born novelist; his Russian-born psychiatrist wife; their precocious child obsessed with K-pop; a struggling Indian American writer; a wildly successful Korean American app developer; a global dandy with three passports; a young flame-thrower of an essayist, originally from the Carolinas; and a movie star, The Actor, whose arrival upsets the equilibrium of this chosen family"--
