Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney
Capturing life’s messy details is an art that Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney mastered in her best-selling debut, The Nest. She goes next-level in this heartfelt novel about voiceover actress Flora, who’s built her life around her solid, caring relationships with her sweet fellow-actor husband Julian, their spirited teenage daughter Ruby, and her fabulous TV-star best friend Margot. But Flora’s life rips apart when she finds a long-forgotten envelope, setting off a string of painful discoveries that threaten everything she thinks she knows about herself. Sweeney nimbly shifts perspectives, giving each character a chance to tell their side of this complex and deeply compelling story. In Sweeney’s hands, no one’s entirely a villain or a victim—just a human. Good Company is a three-hankie read that’s also a dramatic, inspiring story of redemption and rebuilding.
