"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.

In this character-driven follow-up to Sweeney's very successful debut The Nest, Flora is looking for a photograph on the morning of her daughter's high school graduation when she finds the wedding ring her husband claimed to have lost in a lake many years ago hidden in an envelope in an old file cabinet. It makes her question her marriage and whether it is as happy as she thought it was. Meanwhile, her best friend Margot is facing her own challenges.

Good Company is less funny than its predecessor but more introspective and heartfelt.

Readers who found the characters in The Nest to be too irredeemably unlikable might have an easier time with this sophomore novel. Sympathetic and enjoyable, but still pretty unflinching towards the complexities of marriage, ambition, and friendship.
