Schutt's new novel is earning her comparisons to James Salter, Henry Miller and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Join us to hear a master prose stylist's new work about marriage and the migrations between love, lust and longing.
"Prosperous Friends is masterful, a comic-tragic astonishment. Christine Schutt continues to write some of the most original and rewarding prose I've ever read." —Sam Lipsyte
“It is no longer a secret that Christine Schutt is the finest writer among us, and Prosperous Friends is her finest work yet. There isn't a corner in any of her sentences left ungraced by her lyrical genius, her heart-fathoming wisdom. A few pages in, you'll know you have a classic in your hands." —Gary Lutz
“Christine Schutt casts the light of her brilliant prose into the shadowy corners of marriage and sex, aging and art-making, wealth and aspiration. What she finds there is thrilling, dangerous, true: impossible to forget. This is a moving, luminous novel, its radiance all the more striking for the darkness it's willing to explore.” —Sarah Shun-lien Bynum
Christine Schutt is author of the novels Florida (a National Book Award finalist) and All Souls (a Pulitzer Prize finalist), as well as two acclaimed collections of short stories, Nightwork and A Day, A Night, Another Day, Summer.
