"An epic novel...about a generation finding its way...Rakoff has brilliantly captured the mood of the era and the energy of a city."
"An expansive and elegantly executed time capsule of the dot.com generation finding its feet during a critical moment in history."
—New York Daily News
"A Fortunate Age leaves a lasting impression. It's a credit to Ms. Rakoff's sharp writing that you will wonder what happens to her creations as we edge warily and further into the 21st century."
—The New York Observer
