Based on Benjamin and Helen Rask, a glamorous couple in 1920s New York – he a financial baron, she the daughter of an aristocratic family – the novel explores the power of money. »…the uniquely brilliant way in which Diaz tells that story, as meticulously researched as it is narratively exhilarating, makes it a novel not just for the present age but for the ages« [Vogue].
