Praise For Glamorous Disasters…
"Glamorous Disasters is a trenchant look at the junior Fifth Avenue set and the educated young tutors who ensure that they will coast their way into the Ivy League. In this entertaining and compelling debut, Eliot Schrefer reveals both how obvious and how subtle class differences can be -- and shows that even the most expensive educations don't guarantee a strong moral compass." -- Tom Dolby, author of The Trouble Boy
"Glamorous Disasters is a smart, savvy exposé of a world few of us get to see. Schrefer makes his mark as a clever new writer to watch." -- Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada and Everyone Worth Knowing
"The compulsively readable Glamorous Disasters will, no doubt, be hailed as the next Nanny Diaries -- and readers looking for the thrills of an insider tell-all won't be disappointed. But this shouldn't eclipse the fact that Eliot Schrefer's literary debut is also a mordant, moral novel of social observation and social hierarchy in the tradition of Edith Wharton and F. Scott Fitzgerald, with glitzy hints of Bright Lights, Big City. A deft, intelligent exploration of power, money, and class-climbing in Manhattan." -- Darcy Cosper, author of Wedding Season
