The Late Americans by Brandon Taylor

The Late Americans by Brandon Taylor


Selected as a Best Book of 2023 by the Guardian, Irish Times, Harper's Bazaar, Esquire and i-D  


The author of the Booker-shortlisted Real Life returns with a deeply involving new novel of young men and women at a crossroads.  In a university town in the American Midwest a circle of lovers and friends navigate tangled webs of connection as they try to work out what they want, and who they are. As they test their own desires in a series of relationships they are confronted by volatile figures in town, from an unruly, vulnerable young poet to a local landlord harbouring a lifetime of resentment. The friends ask themselves and each other, what is the right thing to stake a life on: work, love, money, dance, poetry? Is love possible without harm? And what does true connection look like in an age of precarity?
