Summary
Ben Markovits' ambitious new fictional tetralogy immerses us in the lives of an upper-middle-class New York family, the Essingers, over multiple generations. In A Weekend In New York, the brilliant first novel in the quartet, Markovits vividly charts the experiences of mid-ranking tennis professional Paul Essinger at the ATP Tour and US Open. In stylishly compelling prose, Markovits interweaves the insular domesticity of family life with the sweeping forces shaping American society to create a deeply intimate yet uncompromisingly political portrait of America
Summary
Paul Essinger is a mid-ranking tennis professional on the ATP tour. His girlfriend Dana is an ex-model and photographer, and the mother of their two-year-old son, Cal. Together they form a tableau of the contented upper-middle-class New York family. But summer storms are blowing through Manhattan, and Paul's parents have come to stay in the build-up to the US Open. Over the course of the weekend, several generations of domestic tension are brought to boiling point..
