Life, love, betrayal and redemption. A college basketball player forgoes a sports career to marry a good and decent man with whom she is not really in love. She is besotted with his womanising, seemingly unattainable best friend who is a musician. The consequences of this decision will play out over several decades. This epic book has it all. The superbly drawn characters became real to me as they struggled to find meaning in their lives. This was an excellent study of the psychology of relationships, but above all it was a very human story. Brilliant writing. This is my first go at a Jonathon Franzen book. I will definitely be reading more of his work.
