Turn of the Century
Bargain Book Copy
Set in the year 2000, "Turn of the Century" is an up-to-the-second comedy of manners that depicts marriage, family, friendship, business, and media as they are conducted in our time, filtered through the wickedly humorous mind of Kurt Andersen, co-founder of Spy. Focused on the centrifugally accelerating lives of a New York City power couple, George and Elizabeth, "Turn Of The Century" depicts a marriage tested by an overload of technology, conflicting career goals, and a serious lack of real togetherness. When George's boss seeks out Lizzie as his confidant, the couple discovers that even in their ultramodern world, certain basic drives - sexual temptation, suspicion and trust, loyalty and betrayal - powerfully endure. A supercharged ride through our era of extreme capitalism, "Turn Of The Century" gives the reader a clear understanding that almost nothing in our world remains black and white and that there are things worth having that can't be bought, sold, or test-marketed.
