The New York Times Can’t Stop Talking About This Beautiful Life


Helen Schulman’s new book, This Beautiful Life: A Novel, “...the story of the Bergamots, a family of four whose expensive new Manhattan life comes crashing down when 15-year-old Jake forwards to a friend a sexually explicit video made for him, unsolicited, by a 13-year-old girl named Daisy Cavanaugh,” has received a lot of attention from The New York Times. Books Of The Times reviewed it on July 24, followed by the Sunday Book Review, and then in ArtsBeat, where they also provided a podcast from “Inside the New York Times Book Review,” featuring discussion with author Helen Schulman.

92YTribeca’s book group, The Literate Parent, is going to read This Beautiful Life in September. Participants are invited to attend a literary salon with the author, Helen Schulman, where they’ll be able to ask her questions and discuss the book with her directly. More info and tickets are available.

For those who have read the book, what are your thoughts on it so far?
