Summary note: "Gross turns his gimlet eye on the new-money wonderland that's sprung up on the southwest rim of Central Park. Mixing an absorbing business epic with ... social comedy, Gross creates a dishy exposé of today's wealthiest and most famous. This colorful story recounts the record-setting building's inspired genesis, costly construction, and the flashy international lifestyle it has brought to a once benighted and socially déclassé Manhattan neighborhood"--Dust jacket flap.
