“Pitch-perfect prose–a real delight for those who have all but given up on recent fiction…a riveting book about the new American family and the atomizing pressures of modern life.” - Chicago Tribune

“Graceful, articulate and perceptive, and often hilariously funny…Dee’s lively shimmering prose illuminates wonderfully observed dystopian moments…[his] writing is so full of elegance, vitality and complexity…at once funny, subversive and sympathetic.”—New York Times Book Review

“Here is an incredibly readable, intelligent, incisive portrait of a particular kind of American family. Jonathan Dee takes us inside the world of what desire for wealth can do, and cannot do, for the self, the soul, and the family. The Privileges is told with admirable conciseness and yet with great breadth, and the reader is swept along, watching the complications of such desire unfold.”—Elizabeth Strout, author of Olive Kitteridge

Smart and socially gifted, Adam and Cynthia Morey are perfect for each other. With Adam’s rising career in the world of private equity, a beautiful home in Manhattan, gorgeous children, and plenty of money, they are, by any reasonable standard, successful. But for the Moreys, their future of boundless privilege is not arriving fast enough. As Cynthia begins to drift, Adam is confronted with a choice that will test how much he is willing to risk to ensure his family’s happiness and to recapture the sense that the only acceptable life is one of infinite possibility. The Privileges is an odyssey of a couple touched by fortune, changed by time, and guided above all else by their epic love for each other.
