"Plumbs the depths of marriage, motherhood and friendship with warmth and wit. I devoured it in one gulp!” —Maria Semple

A warm, incisive new novel about the enduring bonds of marriage and friendship from Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, author of the instant New York Times bestseller The Nest

Flora Mancini has been happily married for more than twenty years. But everything she thought she knew about herself, her marriage, and her relationship with her best friend, Margot, is upended when she stumbles upon an envelope containing her husband’s wedding ring—the one he claimed he lost one summer when their daughter, Ruby, was five.

Flora and Julian struggled for years, scraping together just enough acting work to raise Ruby in Manhattan and keep Julian’s small theater company—Good Company—afloat. A move to Los Angeles brought their first real career successes, a chance to breathe easier, and a reunion with Margot, now a bona fide television star. But has their new life been built on lies? What happened that summer all those years ago? And what happens now? 

With Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney’s signature tenderness, humor, and insight, Good Company tells a bighearted story of the lifelong relationships that both wound and heal us.

Good Company

I was surprised to read the bad reviews of this book as I quite enjoyed it. However, I have a background in little theater, in college and after on the stage but never summer stock. So I found that aspect of the book fun and interesting. I was also a high school guidance counselor and have plenty of experience with therapy sessions, so this part of the book was also interesting. I will agree that it was a little repetitive and drawn out from time to time but I thought generally a good story.

Skip the Book

The story seemed captivating at first, but the story ends up dragging. It seemed like nothing ever hit a climax. I kept reading waiting for the aha moment and it never happened, really disappointing.
