Katie Arnoldi's critically acclaimed debut novel "Chemical Pink" launched her onto the bestseller lists and so burrowed itself into the public's consciousness that its title was the answer to a Double Jeopardy question. Now, seven years later, her second novel, "The Wentworths," gives her readers a fascinating, erotic, dark, and savagely funny page-turner that will both thrill her fans and appeal to new readers of all stripes.
Arnoldi's searing portrait of a wealthy Westside, Los Angeles family, is a true binge read-boldly dramatizing the disfunctionality of the modern American family as it examines how people get so screwed up. Comic and horrifying, sadistic and hilarious, tragic and funny all at the same time, "The Wentworths" is a shocking, yet redemptive tale that will have fans cheering.
