Brightness Falls a novel by Jay McInerney (Hardcover)
Corrine and Russell Calloway lead an enviable New York life, he in publishing, she as a stockbroker. Dissatisfied with his career, however, Russell and another wily young editor plan a hostile takeover of the business. Unwisely, they find a corporate raider to help them--and find themselves betrayed by him in the end. Jay McInerney's novel perfectly captures the greed, glitter, and, finally, disillusion and depression of the 1980s, as the world of high finance and unlimited opportunity collapses and the "Me Decade" comes to an end.
