Description
"A heart-wrenching, beautiful, darkly comic, deeply necessary tale that stuns again and againwith razor-sharp prose and glittering wit." --Téa Obreht, author of The Tiger's Wife "A dark, intoxicating morality tale . . . A world of excess and decadence and the price paid by some--but by no means all . . . Seductive and provocative." --Garth Stein, author of A Sudden Light and The Art of Racing in the Rain In the spellbinding new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robert Goolrick, 1980s Manhattan shimmers like the mirage it was, as money, power, and invincibility seduce a group of young Wall Street turks. Together they reach the pinnacle, achieving the kind of wealth that grants them access to anything--and anyone. Until, one by one, they fall. The Fall of Princes takes readers on a journey that is both starkly revealing and dazzlingly entertaining. "Each chapter is haunting and compulsively readable, written in a bold, brash voice that aims for over-the-top and miraculously sticks the landing." --Entertainment Weekly "While [Goolrick] describes a way of life that may never be possible again, he also manages to convey its beautiful, tragic appeal in an unforgettable rush of prose . . . Irresistible, bittersweet." --The Boston Globe "Compelling, wholly seductive." --Booklist "Brilliantly well done." --New York Daily News "A vivid writer with a penchant for electric scenes." --Minneapolis Star Tribune "While The Fall of Princes patrols territory marked by Tom Wolfe,Jay McInerney and Michael Lewis, Goolrick writes with an immediacyand precision that make this world feel as if it is all his own . . . Painfully beautiful." --The Washington Post

display_description "In the spellbinding new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robert Goolrick, 1980s Manhattan shimmers like the mirage it was, as money, power, and invincibility seduce a group of young Wall Street turks. Together they reach the pinnacle, achieving the kind of wealth that grants them access to anything--and anyone--they want. Until, one by one, they fall. With the literary chops of Bonfire of the Vanities and the dizzying decadence of The Wolf of Wall Street, The Fall of Princes takes readers into a world of hedonistic highs and devastating lows, weaving a visceral tale about the lives of these young men, winners all . . . until someone changes the rules of the game. Goolrick paints a magnificently authentic portrait of an era, tense and stylish, perfectly mixing adrenaline and melancholy. Stunning in its acute observations about great wealth and its absence, and deeply moving in its depiction of the ways in which these men learn to cope with both extremes, the novel travels from New York to Paris to Los Angeles to Italy to Las Vegas to London, on a journey that is as startling as it is starkly revealing, a true tour de force"--From publisher.
