Jay McInerney writes about American society, mostly situated in the South in his new book "How It Ended." To a certain degree it reads like the gossip columns in a newspaper. Personally, I can dig the twelve short stories in one book kind of deal that our man McInerney was doing here. Twelve different stories kept me interested, one: because they were different, and two: because they were excellent.
You can really see the urban world through his eyes. I am a fan.
