Following the success of Brightness Falls--"his most ambitious novel" (The Boston Globe)--Jay McInerney now gives readers a sweeping story of a friendship as complex as it is abiding. Interweaving deeply personal dilemmas and the politics of race, sex, family, and society, The Last of the Savages moves from New England to the deep South and beyond, from the fevers of youth to the uneasy truths of middle age.

From the bestselling author of Bright Lights, Big City and Brightness Falls comes a chronicle of a generation, as enacted by two men who represent all the passions and extremes of the class of 1969. Patrick Keane and Will Savage meet at prep school at the beginning of the explosive '60s. Over the next 30 years, they remain friends even as they pursue radically divergent destinies--and harbor secrets that defy rebellion and conformity.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
