By Meg Wolitzer

When six, artistic teenagers meet for a summer in 1974 at Spirit in the Woods, they dub themselves ‘The Interestings’ due to their intellectual connections. Covering the next four decades of their lives the novel – despite some wonky plot lines – investigates changing dynamics among old friends, the repercussions of success, the pain of unrequited love and the ever-present question: why are we here and what are we supposed to do with our time?

Great for:

• People with patience who enjoy in-depth character studies
• Anyone familiar with Wolitzer’s mastery of prose
• Readers who enjoy epic timelines
