John L'Heureux's previous novels have established him as a consum mate prose stylist, a witty and ferocious ironist, and a deft explorer of the darker sides of men and women. Having Everything is a pitch perfect novel in which L'Heureux's many talents are on full display. Take a man who has everything youth, looks, an important job, a devoted family-and ask: what could make this man jeopardize it all for a moment's flirtation with the forbidden? Having Everything is the story of Philip Tate, just such a man, and the nighttime drive that opens a door to his suddenly inevitable future. Behind that door live the Kizers-beautiful, troubled Dixie, and brilliant, kinky Hal. By stepping, without knocking, into the Kizers' house and into the midst of their sad marriage, Philip sets in motion the near ruin-and per haps the salvation-of his entire world. Fierce, ironic, and beautifully told, Having Everything reminds us that some times-in marriage, and in life-having everything is not enough. #12;JOHN L'HEUREUx is a poet and short-story writer and the author of thirteen novels, including A Woman Run Mad, The Shrine at Altamira, and The Handmaid of Desire. He has taught at Georgetown, Tufts, Harvard, and, for the past twenty-five years, Stanford University.
