BOOK REVIEW

RICH BOY by Sharon Pomerantz
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 2, 2010

"Pomerantz's tale could use a car chase or an explosion, something to relieve its earnestness. The proceedings lack the pointed humor of a Joshua Then and Now or the pointed ironies of a Gatsby, but the tale is competent and readable all the same."
A pleasant if insubstantial rags-to-yuppiedom saga. Read full book review >

RICH DECEIVER by Gillian White
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 15, 1993

Like satirist Fay Weldon, first-novelist White deals with what Weldon's booster quote here refers to as ``domestic infamy'': here, in a tale of an ego-squashed little wife in search of her husband's love, who—after some bizarre plotting and precipitous pratfalls- -emerges fulfilled, fat, and free-standing.

RICH KIDS by Robert Westbrook
Released: May 1, 1992

"In all: an untaxing spin through Hollywood unhappiness."
Westbrook (Lady Left, The Left-Handed Policeman), son of the late Hollywood gossip columnist Sheilah Graham, returns with a lurid family portrait and murder mystery, set in the moneyed world in which he grew up (the same world we glimpse in half-sister Wendy Fairey's nonfictional One of the Family, p. 228).
