The Priviliges, by Jonathan Dee

Wonderfully written kind of American Icarus story. Adam and Cynthia meet, marry, and have children. Along the way, Adam thinks he sees how much Cynthia wants Things, and becomes morally compromised, while Cynthia falls into being a non-person. Their children, April and Jonas, for all the priviliges that Adam and Cynthia have been able to offer them, drift.
This got really great reviews, and it was good, but I feel like I've read the same story over and over.
