As big and exciting as the next century, this is a novel of real life at our giddy, feverish, topsy-turvy edge of the millennium. Turn of the Century is a good old-fashioned novel about the day after tomorrow, an uproarious, exquisitely observed panorama of our world as the twentieth century morphs into the twenty-first.

George Mactier and Lizzie Zimbalist, ten years married, are caught up in the whirl of their accelerating lives. George is a TV producer launching a ground-breaking new show. Lizzie is a software entrepreneur running her own company. However, after Lizzie becomes a confidante and advisor to George's boss, billionaire media mogul Harold Mose, the couple discovers that no amount of sophisticated spin can obscure basic instincts: envy, greed, suspicion, sexual temptation--and, maybe, love.

Like Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities, Kurt Andersen's Turn of the Century lays bare the follies of our age with laser-beam precision, creating memorable characters and dissecting the ways we think, speak, and navigate this new era of extreme capitalism and mind-bogging technology. Entertaining, imaginative, knowing, and wise, Turn of the Century is a richly plotted comedy of manners about the way we live now.
