Meritocracy Quartet - new book

ISBN: 9781907822889

ID: 9781907822889

Acclaimed writer Jeffrey Lewis is known for his deft portrayals of relatable figures from all walks of life. In The Meritocracy Quartet, his four interlinking novels-Meritocracy: A Love Story, The Conference of the Birds, Theme Song for an Old Show, and Adam the King-have been brought together for the first time into a single volume. Set against the backdrop of the changing American landscape over four decades, The Meritocracy Quartet is a testament to the country`s evolving personality.The quartet follows Louie, a Yale graduate from a modest background with a gift for forging connections in high and low places. Beginning in the 1960s, as he documents a going-away party for a fellow Yalie on his way to Vietnam, and continuing through his spiritual encounters with a 1970s group of city misfits, his turn to television writing in the 1980s, and a tragic love story between two of his close friends in the 1990s, Louie chronicles not only his own personal struggles-his silent love for his best friend`s girl, his delicate relationship with an at-times absent father-but also the attitudes, events, and people that marked his generation. From the Vietnam War to George W. Bush, from television trends to the divide between the haves and have-nots, The Meritocracy Quartet is a moving witness to everything America had to offer in the latter portion of the twentieth century.

Each book represents a decade, charting the rise and fall of different political and social ideals through American contemporary culture. The Meritocracy Quartet is a life and a death, a sweeping panorama and an expression of how and why. But, more than this, it is a beautiful story.
