    1. Worked as senior editor at The New Yorker Also worked for The Washington Post.

    2. Ugh! Why did I even bother with this book? Boring, plotless, unlikeable characters. Why, oh why, did I bother??

    3. Jeffrey Frank employs the ballot-counting debacle of the 2000 election as a back drop for the coming change in DC and its ripple effects among the D-list social set. Events swirl around wanna-be socialite Trudy Hopedale, a party-giving friend seeker among the influential people. Irony is so heavily slathered on this story that it iswell, ironic. There's some humor, some recognizable stereotypes, and enough bits of history that kept me reading, finally reaching the bitter end.Re-reading. May,2015 [...]

    4. Not sure why I put off reading this for so long -- it came out five years ago. Kind of wickedly wonderful satirical takedown of the old Georgetown social set in the waning, pre-9/11 era. Horrible people being horrible to one another but managing, of course, to love themselves. Not just satire; there's a real vein of melancholy under it. Abrupt ending left me cold -- it was meant to, I'm sure.

    5. Gah, I can't read this. I get that the tone is supposed to be clever and sarcastic, I say it's just annoying.

    6. Delightful book--an inside look at Washington society--from two viewpoints. Very shallow characters, but the dialogue is as if they are talking out loud. Very enjoyable and very quick to read.
