    Top Ten Books

    Hard though it is to believe today, there was a time when a novelist could be a celebrity. Apart from its extraordinary literary voice, Jay McInerney's debut novel, Bright Lights Big City turned the writer into a sensation, widely feted by New York society, often in the company of his good friend Bret Easton Ellis. Since then he has published eight books of fiction including Brightness Falls and The Good Life, and has a ninth out this August, Bright, Precious Days. An oenophile, he has also written three books on wine, and writes regularly about wine for The Wall Street Journal.

    Below are Jay McInerney’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually.
