50 BRIGHTNESS FALLS Jay McInerney (USA,1992)

The story of Russell and Corrine, their crumbling marriage, and his decision to buy the publishing company he works for.

Bright Lights, Big City, by the same author, is one of my favorite novels. Naturally, Brightness Falls could not top that one. 
This is still a good book, filled with realistic dialogues and heartbreaking insights on the disappointments of life. Unfortunately this time, McInerney makes the mistake to drag on his story when it is unnecessary, while his previous novel was to the point.

This short review should complete my 50 book challenge of the year!

See you all next year.
