Synopses & Reviews
Tommy Quinn just landed his dream job as an investment banker, as well as his dream girl, the daughter of one of New York's oldest moneyed families. But in the course of a year, as he moves from the bank's boardrooms and Park Avenue bedrooms to the yacht of a debauched Mexican billionaire to a Ritalin-strewn prep school dorm room, he finds that neither the job nor the girl are quite what they seem.
"In one slim volume [Vachon] updates the 1980s canon Bright Lights, Big City, Barbarians at the Gate, and Bonfire of the Vanities, taking readers into the depths of a young man's ordeal inside a thinly disguised Wall Street firm."
"A witty and entertaining immorality tale which should earn Vachon many fans, if not necessarily among his friends and family."
-- Jay McInerney
"A funny romp."
"Dana Vachon exposes the carnal and financial lusts of his generation's privileged and ambitious as few others have in recent years."
-- Candace Bushnell
