Summary
  • Three novels by Mary McCarthy, the witty and provocative writer who defined a generation, including her landmark classic The Group, as well as McCarthy's final two novels Birds of America, and Cannibals and Missionaries, plus McCarthy's 1979 essay "The Novels that Got Away," on her unfinished fiction
  • The group: The lives and experiences of eight Vassar graduates during the thirty years following their graduation as they grapple with sex, sexism, money, motherhood, and family
  • Birds of a feather: In 1964, a young man arrives in France to do his junior year at the Sorbonne. Although he endeavors to live his daily student life according to the laws of harmony and inner consistency, what results is disaster upon disaster and frustrated clashes with the establishment, as he becomes an unwilling witness to the changes in society and its values and to the decline in the quality of life
  • Cannibals and missionaries: A committee of human rights advocates flies to Iran in 1975 to investigate charges of torture; on the same plane is a group of art collectors to visit Iranian museums and archaeological sites. The plane is hijacked, and both groups become hostages
  • Cannibals and missionaries: An unconventional thriller about a group of airplane passengers taken hostage by militant Middle Eastern hijackers en route to Iran in 1975. The passengers include a committee of politicians, religious leaders, and activists on a mission to investigate alleged human rights violations by the shah-- as well as prominent art collectors with access to some of the world's most valuable paintings-- priceless works that could fund global terrorist activities for decades
