Three brilliant novels from a #1 New York Times–bestselling author.
 
Navigating friendship, sex, careers, and the challenges of adulthood, the characters of Mary McCarthy’s novels remain instantly relatable, whether they’re living in 1930s New York City or 1960s Paris. Here, three of her most outstanding works are collected in one volume.
 
The Group: This “witty . . . brilliant” blockbuster bestseller follows eight privileged girls from their youthful friendship at Vassar through their complicated journeys into womanhood (Cosmopolitan).
 
The Company She Keeps: A “clever, witty, polished” novel about a young bohemian’s daring political and romantic explorations among an intellectual Manhattan social circle (TheNew York Times).
 
Birds of America: In 1964, a shy young student and birdwatcher arrives in Paris to study at the Sorbonne and finds himself disoriented by the rapidly changing world around him. This “endlessly fascinating novel” (San Francisco Chronicle) is “in the same class as Henry James’s The American and Henry Miller’s Tropic of Cancer” (Esquire).
 
Known for her satirical wit and blending of autobiographical detail from her own colorful life into her fiction, McCarthy was a literary icon whose books provide a rich glimpse of mid-twentieth-century America and a psychologically astute, timeless reading experience.
