"From the Hardcover edition.""

Close lays the sacrifices and successes of a marriage bare with razor-sharp prose and keen wit. Fans of Lianne Moriarty s relatable heroines will adore fish-out-of-water Beth, while political junkies will appreciate an insider s view of a small campaign. With themes reminiscent of "The Marriage Plot "and perfectly suited for this year s political climate, "The Hopefuls "is unflinchingly honest and utterly compelling.

Shewrites honestly and convincingly about those aspects of marriage and friendship, too.

"From the Hardcover edition.""

One of the finest releases of 2016 Thorpe is a major talent, and reading her work will bring to mind other writers who deftly control their universes with such clarity and acuity, like Donna Tartt or Ann Patchett.
Martin McClellan, "The Seattle Review of Books"
Thorpe excels at immersing readers in a foreign setting . It s a beautiful novel to close out the summer: a family vacation narrative with far more depth and nuance than a typical beach read but a perfectly welcome addition to a beach tote all the same.
Stacia L. Brown, "The Washington Post "
"
" Veraand Lucas and their tour companions will live on in the reader s imagination, all of them longing for something that seems out of reach, or if achieved, then grasped too late As much as the characters live on, so too will Vilnius. Ms. Thorpe evokes it beautifully... She is both a skilled and intelligent writer: an adept of vivid prose and deft pacing. This book is her second novel. Let s hope for more to come. She is definitely an author to watch.
Claire Hopley, The"Washington Times"
A deeply-detailed, beautiful, often hilarious novel, "Dear Fang, With "A captivating, compulsively readable and utterly original book.
Mary Pauline Lowry, "The Huffington Post"
Thorpe s voice, language, and attention to detail sucked me into the world she s created. Thorpe manages to tackle dark issues estranged families, mental illness, and failed relationships with a unique sense of humor and big-hearted empathy.
" "Michelle King, "Electric Literature
"
This book weaves an emotional web that will draw you in completely.
"Bustle"
[Thorpe s] second novel, which blends the cultural history of"The Tiger's Wife"with the madcap energy of Dave Eggers, just might be her breakout book.
"BookPage"
"Tremendous... Showcase[s] Thorpe s fabulous versatility, insight, and humor... While the themes of the book--mania, the Holocaust, and the devastating number of ways that any parent-child dynamic can go awry--are undeniably dark, Thorpe s prose is light, often hilarious, and unshakably grounded in the concrete details of daily life... Thorpe has written an absolute winner."

"The Hopefuls"captures everything we love to hate about Washington A hilarious gripefest Here, finally, is a novel witty enough to match your secret loathing and tenderhearted enough to make you realize how much you love this damned cesspool after all [The] winking humor and especially the real affection between Beth and Matt make"The Hopefuls"a pleasure to read [Close] has a light, precise touch about the way a young marriage works when the partners are caught between old ideals and new realities But the real heart of"The Hopefuls"is the tension between idealism and cynicism inherent to politics... A welcome mixture of humor and wisdom about the good people who run this country or, for some reason, want to.
Ron Charles, "The Washington Post"

"
I couldn t put down this juicy novel, which is all about what striving to make it in politics does to relationships.
Megan Angelo, "Glamour "
Jennifer Close s fresh, smart, realistic portrayal of two young Washington couples is a must read for"House of Cards"junkies . [D.C.] almost functions as a fifth character in the book, with its own quirks and dynamics and idiosyncrasies.
Kimmery Martin, "The Huffington Post "
[A] hilarious send up of the very social strata [Close] and her husband orbit. Turns out Washington can laugh at itself, especially when an insider is lobbing the hilarious insults. Plus, Close is an official fan of the District now, and expertly positionedto throw stones.
Helena Andrews-Dyer, "The Washington Post "
A roman a clef that has D.C. laughing.
Jane Ciabattari, "LitHub"
A much lighter, funnier version of"House of Cards" imagine the jealousy and ambition of the Underwoods married with the humor of a sitcom like"New Girl"with its focus on friendships and playing at adulthood.
Lauren Stacks, "Chicago Review of Books "
Close s novel carries a deceptively light tone. Yes, it s a comedy, and yes, it s a relationship novel, but it s so timely and so wonderfully realized that"The Hopefuls"isn t"just"those things. It s too good too important to be relegated as a work of genre. "The Hopefuls"captures the competition and ambition of today s political environment, and that tension builds as the novel progresses. Close writes with a heightened awareness of how rooted the very nature of political struggle is within our very national identity.
Bradley Sides, "Electric Literature "
Captivating Close, whose husband worked onObama s campaign, uses her knowledgeof this world and her experience as anoutsider expertly.Beth s conversationalnarration feels like peering into the diary ofsomeone who shares your deepest insecurities.
Isabella Biedenharn, "Entertainment Weekly "
Entertain(s) with keenly observed inner-circle perspectives and shrewd insight into how personal politics can become.
Michael Magras, "BookPage"
New York newlyweds head to D.C. to what else? chase their dreams. Actually, just Matt s dreams. His wife, Beth, isn t all that impressed by the surrounding political haughtiness until she meets another couple, Jimmy and Ash. "The Hopefuls "will make you rethink inviting your best married friends over for dinner.

Descripción Random House Audio Publishing Group, 2016. CD-Audio. Condición: New. Unabridged. Language: English . Brand New. A brilliantly funny novel about ambition and marriagefrom the best-selling author ofGirls in White Dresses, The Hopefulstells the story of a young wife who follows her husband and his political dreams to Washington, D.C., a city of idealism, gossip, and complicated friendships among the young aspiring elite. When Beth arrives in D.C., she hates everything about it: the confusing traffic circles, the ubiquitous Ann Taylor suits, the humidity that descends each summer. At dinner parties, guests compare their security clearance levels. They leave their BlackBerrys on the table. They speak in acronyms. And once they realize Beth doesn t work in politics, they smile blandly and turn away. Soon Beth and her husband, Matt, meet a charismatic White House staffer named Jimmy, and his wife, Ashleigh, and the four become inseparable, coordinating brunches, birthdays, and long weekends away. But as Jimmy s star rises higher and higher, the couples friendship and Beth s relationship with Matt is threatened by jealousy, competition, and rumors. A glorious send-up of young D.C. and a blazingly honest portrait of a marriage, this is the finest work yet by one of our most beloved writers. From the Hardcover edition.
