Abstract:

A stylish novel about the lives and loves of well-to-do young Manhattanites in their first year on Wall Street, this is the story of Tommy Quinn, a recent Georgetown grad who has just landed the job of his dreams as an investment banker, and the perfect girl, Frances Sloan, the daughter of one of New York's oldest moneyed families. As he travels from the most exclusive ballrooms to the stuffiest boardrooms, from the golf links of Piping Rock to the bedrooms of Park Avenue, and from the debauched yacht of a Mexican billionaire to the Ritalin-strewn prep-school dorm room of his younger brother, he finds that the job and the girl are not what they once seemed. The book is suffused with an authenticity that only an author who lives in that world can provide.--From publisher description.
