Sports fans -- We have arrived. These are the golden weeks of sport: the World Series, the NFL season hitting full stride, the NHL underway and the NBA not far off in the future.

Claire Messud's new book "The Emperor's Children" could very well be subtitled "Great Expectations." The novel, which was released to impressive critical acclaim, interweaves the stories of three friends who first met as talented, promising undergraduates at Brown University (a very fashionable alma mater for fictional characters nowadays) and who have since pursued professional success in the whirl and dazzle of New York City.
