A Company of Three

ebook

"An old-fashioned novel . . . Elegantly wrought, hard-headed and tenderhearted about the world of actors and theater" (Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay).

When Robert, Patrick, and Irene met in New York City in the late 1970s, they were all determined to become actors, and it felt as if the city—or even the world—could be their oyster. Robert was the good-looking, ambitious one. Patrick was tall, ungainly, but naturally dramatic. And Irene, a former rodeo star out of Kansas, was the beautiful ingenue. They were young, talented, and passionate, and they soon became inseparable.

But their careers don't all head in the same direction, and as their lives change course, friendships are tested—and they all face decisions that could undo them. A Company of Three features "a fascinating set of characters, who rely on and push each other away in equal measure, and their struggles are sure to engage readers, especially those interested in the cutthroat world of acting" (Booklist).

"O'Connor's clean, affecting prose and her book's moving conclusion will stay with readers long after the curtain drops." —Publishers Weekly
