Summary

The best-selling Brightness Falls - from the author of Bright Lights, Big City.

Not Bright Lights but still legit

A very solid book by Jay Mac. Shows his strength and growth as a writer from his brat pack days to Brightness Falls. A simple story of a yuppie couple that holds up all these years later. Good work
