A pacy read, Dunne obviously knows his stuff, the people, the attitude. The plot is also good, the AIDS strand could be really cliched but is nicely underplayed. A little dry in places and overall it feels like the book could have done with a good polish. It's a little episodic in places and it doesn't always hang together. However, the characters are well drawn and it brings to life a time when old money met with new money. A good read, not particularly trashy, but not too worthy. This was also made into a mini-series starring Ben Gazzara, Connie Selleca from tv's 'Hotel' and Jean Simmons.
