Sideways

  • Paperback
"Sideways" is the story of two friends-Miles and Jack-going away together for the last time to steep themselves in everything that makes it good to be young and single: pinot, putting, and prowling bars. In the week before Jack plans to marry, the pair heads out from Los Angeles to the Santa Ynez wine country. For Jack, the tasting tour is Seven Days to D-Day, his final stretch of freedom. For Miles—who has divorced his wife, is facing an uncertain career and has lost his passion for living-the trip is a weeklong opportunity to evaluate his past, his future and himself. A raucous and surprising novel filled with wonderful details about wine, "Sideways" is also a thought-provoking and funny book about men, women, and human relationships.

Miles and Jack are friends who share a real passion for wine. Jack is getting married in a week and Miles is obsessing over whether his manuscript will be accepted for publication. To try and take their minds off everything, they embark on a weekend in wine country. The weekend quickly descends into a three day bender filled with wine, women and whinging about their lives. Miles is an inward looking and rather melodramatic narrator while Jack is as charming as he is infuriating. But despite their flaws, Miles and Jack are both engaging and likeable, and often extremely funny. Sideways is an intelligent novel that leaves us on a good note without resorting to a ‘happily ever after’ ending, something I found refreshing. And it’s about fifty times better than the movie.
