Fritz Brubaker and his wife, Lindaa€”an attractive couple in their mid-fortiesa€”have it all. Hea€™s a toy-company executive and shea€™s a million-dollar-a-year lawyer. Their children are in private school; they have a McMansion in a Boston suburb and a cottage on Nantucket. But their comfortable world is suddenly turned upside down when Fritza€™s companya€™s stock tanks and he is arrested for insider trading. Lindaa€™s image-conscious inrm suspends her. Their houses get repossessed. The kids go haywire. Watching the Brubaker familya€™s lives unravel is the best way to see the stuff from which theya€™re really made. This clever, very funny novel is a post-millennial snapshot of America that shows what happens to an economy built on greed when its chickens come home to roost. Ita€™s the story of a family gone wrong, and its attempt to reset its course. The author of two successful thrillers, Sabin Willett delivers in this ambitious new novel the kind of witty social commentary we associate with Tom Wolfe, Jonathan Franzen, and Zadie Smith. But he writes in his own original voice, breaking new ground as he describes a changed world. Present Value is a provocative, wonderfully entertaining ridea€”an irreverent, clear-eyed view of the way we live now.
