"Despite their many differences, driven scholarship student Ed Cantowitz and Boston Brahmin Hugh Shipley forge an intense friendship during their time at Harvard in the 1960s. When Hugh's girlfriend reappears, they become a close-knit threesome until, after graduation, time and circumstance divide them. Decades later, after career successes and dramatic setbacks, both Ed and Hugh have daughters who become friends at boarding school, drawing the adults together once more - which is perhaps not for the best. Character-driven and introspective, this novel offers thoughtful reflections on class competition and familial strife."
