Inhaltsangabe: With the publication of Bright Lights, Big City in 1984, Jay McInerney became a literary sensation, heralded as the voice of a generation. The novel follows a young man, living in Manhattan as if he owned it, through nightclubs, fashion shows, editorial offices, and loft parties as he attempts to outstrip mortality and the recurring approach of dawn. With nothing but goodwill, controlled substances, and wit to sustain him in this anti-quest, he runs until he reaches his reckoning point, where he is forced to acknowledge loss and, possibly, to rediscover his better instincts. This remarkable novel of youth and New York remains one of the most beloved, imitated, and iconic novels in America.
Inhaltsangabe: Au c?ur du New York des années 1980, il n´est pas toujours facile d´être un yuppie. Tel un oiseau de nuit, le « héros » de Bright Lights, Big City vit principalement entre clubs privés et discothèques où le champagne coule à flots et où la consommation de drogue est une règle de vie. Mais ces échappatoires restent bien vaines face au mal de vivre. Entre la déception liée à un travail ennuyeux et le chagrin qui suit le départ de sa femme, que lui reste t-il ? Peut-être la littérature. Et l´écriture, son rêve de toujours.
