Summary

A Read with Jenna Today Show Book Club Pick!

"Plumbs the depths of marriage, motherhood and friendship with warmth and wit. I devoured it in one gulp!" --Maria Semple

A warm, incisive new novel about the enduring bonds of marriage and friendship from Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, author of the instant New York Times bestseller The Nest

Flora Mancini has been happily married for more than twenty years. But everything she thought she knew about herself, her marriage, and her relationship with her best friend, Margot, is upended when she stumbles upon an envelope containing her husband's wedding ring--the one he claimed he lost one summer when their daughter, Ruby, was five.

Flora and Julian struggled for years, scraping together just enough acting work to raise Ruby in Manhattan and keep Julian's small theater company--Good Company--afloat. A move to Los Angeles brought their first real career successes, a chance to breathe easier, and a reunion with Margot, now a bona fide television star. But has their new life been built on lies? What happened that summer all those years ago? And what happens now?

With Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney's signature tenderness, humor, and insight, Good Company tells a bighearted story of the lifelong relationships that both wound and heal us.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "D'Aprix Sweeney follows up her debut novel, The Nest (2016), with this character-driven story exploring the lives and laments of two couples. Flora and Julian are finally feeling financially stable since finding steady jobs in L.A., Flora doing regular voice-over work and Julian starring in a television show; officially dedicating more of his time to his acting than his perpetually struggling theater company back in New York, Good Company. Their daughter, Ruby, has just graduated high school and Flora is hunting for a picture taken when Ruby was five, at Good Company's summer theater upstate, with the three of them and their best friends, Margot and David. What she doesn't expect to find is Julian's original wedding ring, the one he claimed to have lost that same summer, sending Flora down memory lane, questioning everything she believed about her marriage and her best friend. Masterfully building character (although Julian and David get the short shrift) and dropping revelations through flashbacks, D'Aprix Sweeney's writing is smooth and propelling. Readers of introspective, relational novels will devour this. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Nest was a bona fide megahit, and with plenty of fanfare already generating, fans are primed for Good Company."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Sweeney's disappointing latest (after The Nest) revolves around two New York City theater transplants and their daughter and friends in Los Angeles. When musical theater--turned--voiceover actor Flora Mancini discovers her husband Julian Fletcher's wedding ring in their garage, she suspects something is awry: he had told her he lost it swimming in a pond. A meandering set of backstories and present-day happenings ensues, involving the couple's 18-year-old daughter, Ruby, and their best friends: Margot Letta, an actor on a television drama, and her husband, David Pearlman, a former cardiac surgeon whose practice was upended when he had a stroke. In chapters alternating between the characters' points of view, Sweeney unravels the love, pain, and disappointment between them as Flora seeks to discover why Julian lied about the wedding ring, Margot's TV role comes to a close and she reckons with her part in the ring mystery, and Ruby travels to Spain with a boyfriend before starting college. While the deliciously flawed characters are well developed, the lackluster climax and drawn-out therapy scenes involving Flora and Julian are less successful. In the end, readers will long for more drama in a story of people whose lives are steeped in it. Agent: Henry Dunow, Dunow, Carlson & Lerner Literary Agency. (May)"
