A classic with a recently issued sequel, I would recommend it with a caution. It is satire; it is witty, extremely well constructed, but macabre and potentially depressing. It takes off the well born and old monied, the mafia, and even the clergy who "minister" to the well-heeled. You are dealing with the underbelly of the human condition, as Susan's irresponsible choices rip through the lives of the people who love her, and John's capitulation to a dark moral world twists back to tear his life apart.
The book cries out for its sequel, so be prepared, if you finish it, to continue on to The Gate House.
