|Summary, etc.:||The riveting novel of iron-willed Alva Vanderbilt and her illustrious family as they rule Gilded-Age New York, from the New York Times bestselling author of Z: A NOVEL OF ZELDA. In 1883, the New York Times prints a lengthy rave of Alva Vanderbilt's Fifth Ave. costume ball - a coup for the former Alva Smith, who not long before was destitute, her family's good name useless on its own. Marrying into the newly rich but socially scorned Vanderbilt clan, a union contrived by Alva's best friend and now-Duchess of Manchester, saved the Smiths - and elevated the Vanderbilts. But how much of ambition arises from insecurity? From despair? From refusal to play insipid games by absurd rules?|
