About this title

Synopsis:

Following the success of Brightness Falls--"his most ambitious novel" (The Boston Globe)--Jay McInerney now gives readers a sweeping story of a friendship as complex as it is abiding. Interweaving deeply personal dilemmas and the politics of race, sex, family, and society, The Last of the Savages moves from New England to the deep South and beyond, from the fevers of youth to the uneasy truths of middle age.

Review:

McInerney recounts nearly three decades of history through the lives of prep school roommates Patrick Keane and Will Savage. Keane, the narrator, goes the corporate law route. Savage is the rebellious scion of an aristocratic family from the Deep South. Anxious to atone for the misdeeds of a family whose history includes the brutal suppression of a slave rebellion, Savage becomes a leader of the 1970s counterculture and, later, a music company executive whose mission is to record blues musicians. Along the way he marries a black singer at least in part to get a rise out of his family.
