The National Book Award–winning novel by the writer whom
Fran Lebowitz called “the real F. Scott Fitzgerald”
Joe Chapin led a storybook life. A successful small-town
lawyer with a beautiful wife, two over-achieving children, and aspirations to
be president, he seemed to have it all. But as his daughter looks back on his
life, a different man emerges: one in conflict with his ambitious and shrewish
wife, terrified that the misdeeds of his children will dash his political
dreams, and in love with a model half his age.
With black wit and penetrating
insight, Ten North Frederick stands
with Richard Yates’ Revolutionary Road,
Evan S. Connell’s Mr. Bridge and Mrs. Bridge, the stories of John
Cheever, and Mad Men as a brilliant
portrait of the personal and political hypocrisy of mid-century America. Download and start listening now!
