ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR The New York Times WINNER OF THE KIRKUS PRIZEA MAN BOOKER PRIZE FINALIST A NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST follows four college classmates—broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition—as they move to New York in search of fame and fortune. While their relationships, which are tinged by addiction, success, and pride, deepen over the decades, the men are held together by their devotion to the brilliant, enigmatic Jude, a man scarred by an unspeakable childhood trauma.
