I just finished Bright, Precious Days by Jay McInerney, infamous author of Bright Lights Big City.
It reminded me of Sex and the City ...only focusing on married couples.
I hadn't read his previous novels that tracked the lives of these aforementioned couples and as a result I didn't feel Invested nor did I care. It was an uneven read, often slow moving and in all fairness, maybe one needs to read the two preceding novels (Brightness Falls and The Good Life).... but that's not going to happen.
Nutshell by Ian McEwan is my next read and it looks like it's going to be smart, funny and oh do I love his prose!!!!! Stay tuned.
