About the Author

Meg Wolitzer is the author of several acclaimed novels, most recently The Uncoupling ('tingles with playfulness and wicked observation' Independent) and The Wife ('has you howling with recognition' Allison Pearson), The Position ('one of the best and most human books I've read all year' Erica Wagner) and The Ten-Year Nap ('as incisive and pitiless and clear-eyed a chronicler of female-male tandems as Philip Roth or John Updike' Chicago Tribune). She is married with two sons and lives in New York City.


This is a wonderful book. Intelligent and subtle, it is exquisitely written with enormous warmth and depth of emotion... But what makes The Interestings exceptional is the precision and elegance of Wolitzer's writing... This should be the novel to make Wolitzer a household name here too -- Kate Mosse * The Times *
Wolitzer is a writer of prodigious energy and detail, with the knack for comic-satirical perceptions of character and culture -- Rachel Cusk * Guardian *
A complex, cleverly interwoven analysis of the moment when the lives of six friends begin to unravel' -- Viv Groskop * Observer *
Wolitzer has a knack for homing in on the kind of pretension-puncturing details that can sum up a minor character in a single sentence -- Hepzibah Anderson * Daily Mail *
Meg Wolitzer writes fluently about the American Dream and whether you should surrender your goals to reality in this wonderful novel * Stylist *
I love Meg Wolitzer's The Interestings because it's sprawling and beautifully written and it opens at a summer camp. It's a truly great novel about friendship, and how it deepens and changes over the years -- David Sedaris * Conde Nast Traveller *
A breakout book -- Allison Pearson
If you enjoy the introspective aspects of Virginia Woolf or the American modernity of Jennifer Egan, you'll love this sweeping, tragicomic novel of ideas * Psychologies *
One of those generation-defining America novels that tackles big historical issues * Marie Claire *
Full of wit * Emerald Street *
The wit, intelligence and deep feeling of Wolitzer's writing are extraordinary and The Interestings brings her achievement, already so steadfast and remarkable, to an even higher level * Jeffrey Eugenides *
