Modern LoversBook - 2016
Back in their band's heyday, Elizabeth put on a snarl over her Midwestern smile, Andrew let his unwashed hair grow past his chin, and Zoe was the lesbian all the straight women wanted to sleep with. Now nearing fifty they all live within shouting distance in the same neighborhood deep in gentrified Brooklyn. But nothing has aged them like having to suddenly pass the torch (of sexuality, independence, and the ineffable alchemy of cool) to their own offspring. As secrets and revelations are finally let loose-- about themselves, and about the famous fourth band member who soared and fell without them-- the stability of their lives can never be reclaimed.
