From the Publisher:
In his debut, acclaimed bestselling author Jonathan Tropper captured the anxiety and humor of a group of friends as they near their thirtieth birthdays and have to come to terms with a milestone that they never thought would be like this. Ten years ago, they went into the world full of dreams for the future. But now Ben’s getting a divorce, Lindsey’s unemployed, Alison and Chuck are stuck in ruts, and Jack is getting more publicity for his cocaine addiction than his Hollywood success. Suddenly, turning thirty seems to be both more meaningful and less than they’d imagined it to be.||Tropper’s endearing novel is about more than love, celebrity, addiction, kidnapping, or even turning thirty; it’s a heartfelt comic riff on what it means to be an adult against your will.
Five friends turn 30 in New York: Ben, a divorced wannabe writer; Lindsey, the love of his life; Alison, a lawyer; Chuck, a doctor with a maturity problem; and Jack, a celebrity movie star who's also a junkie.
