Peter and Rebecca Harris: mid-40s denizens of Manhattan's SoHo, nearing the apogee of committed careers in the arts - he a dealer, she an editor. With a spacious loft, a college-age daughter in Boston, and lively friends, they are admirable, enviable contemporary urbanites with every reason, it seems, to be happy. Then Rebecca's much younger look-alike brother, Ethan (known in the family as Mizzy, the mistake ), shows up for a visit. A beautiful, beguiling 23-year-old with a history of drug problems, Mizzy is wayward, at loose ends, looking for direction. And in his presence, Peter finds himself questioning his artists, their work, his career - the entire world he has so carefully constructed.

Like his legendary, Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Hours, Michael Cunningham's masterly new novel is a heartbreaking look at the way we live now. Full of shocks and aftershocks, it makes us think and feel deeply about the uses and meaning of beauty and the place of love in our lives.

    " It's well written, and I enjoyed it, but not as much as A Home at the End of the World. "

    " I loved the end of this book, and the beginning was compelling - some parts of the middle got a little tedious. I thought about giving this three stars, but since I almost stopped reading, I thought two might be better. However, I thought the minor twist was genius. "

    " I seem to love so much of what I read. This is a novel by the author of The Hours, and it is so adult and intelligent. It's all from the POV of a man in his 40s, and his qualms about marriage and what he does and who he is. And it has a good ending. I guess I need to read something 2 stars so I quit rating everything so high or my credibility will be ruined "
