Living in crumbling Brooklyn apartments, holding down jobs as actors and writers and eschewing the middle-class sensibilities of their parents, Lil, Beth, Sadie, Emily, Dave and Tal believe they can have it all. When the group come together to celebrate Lil's marriage, it feels as though anything is possible in late 1990s New York, an era defined by excess, where creative jobs are everywhere and youth is golden. But the reality of rent, marriage, children and family will test them all. Sprawling and richly drawn, A Fortunate Age traces the lives of the group during some of the most defining years of modern America - from the decadence of the dot com boom through to the sobering events of September 11 and the trailing years that followed.
