Description

The Pulitzer Prize finalist and National Book Critics Circle Award–winning author of Newjack delivers an irreverent, poignant, and revealing meditation on the lives of the rich in Aspen, Colorado. 

Here is a classic report on the sweet temptation of wealth and the vainglorious quest for paradise as they exist in Aspen, Colorado, featuring a "cast of characters (that) includes such barn-size satirical targets as exclusive health clubs, over-the-hill drug dealers and movie stars and rock stars of wattages bright and dim" (The New Republic).
