What happens when seven members of a cookie exchange suddenly win the mega millions? Now, in the midst of the worst economic downturn in three quarters of a century, The Lottery turns Pearlman’s unflinching eye on class and security, arrogance and entitlement when she opens up the dirty little secret of money and wealth. As seven members of a cookie exchange meet to play the lottery, they realize each has scars from the economic system and has been hit by the recession in different ways. But, of course, they win! The big one: $125 million. A life changing amount. Their dreams have all come true. Or have they? Will anything ever again be as exciting? With the lottery win, healed fractures break open, bursting into rages. Character flaws are exposed; loyalties and moralities are tested. And, yes, new lives and dreams are realized. Wealth brings out strength, courage, and generosity in some, and selfishness, greed, conceit in others. Integrity is tested when they learn startling things—garnering dismay and admiration — about themselves as they finish another year together, frayed at the edges, but even closer as events make a full circle. As readers we are able to examine our own ethics about money and class, and, indeed, life itself, as we witness the cookie club friends facing both struggle and joy. How does this all end? Leave it to Pearlman to bring the story to a memorable conclusion, warming our hearts and breaking our hearts at the same time.
