My name is Gus Bailey…It should be pointed out that it is a regular feature of my life that people whisper things in my ear, very private things, about themselves or others.

Dunne's last novel, and almost a farewell tour, with many familiar characters, now ageing. This could be considered a sequel to "People Like Us," which should probably be read first.

The intro, where Gus Bailey is reintroduced after his apparent death in "Another City, Not My Own" is a bit rough, but ignoring that, the story is typical Dunne...high sociaty, gossip, and scandal. It was enjoyable, but not the equal of his earlier books, in my opinion.

If you love a good gossip about the rich and super rich in New York this is the author for you. I have read every one of his books and he is always a hoot. I am not good at working out the "real" folks behind his characters but I can tell you they are real. The author himself had a tragic life but he brings the most delightful sense of humor and gossip to his stories. If you like Juicy his earlier stories are better than this one but this is the last of his works, he died after this one was published. Hard to say farewell to one who has given me such good times.

Wonderfull witty romp though New York's creme de la creme. The title says it all, the people in this book have so much money they realy don't know what to do with themselfs. Dunne( a contributer to Vanity Fair) wrote about the life he knew. And many of the subjects in his book are based almost exactly off of real life people in Dunne's social circle. These people are all movers and shakers in New York. One of the fun games to play while reading the book is to try and figure out who is who. But even if you know nothing of New York power players, it is a fun peak inside a world most of us will never know!

Love my Dominick . . . so sad this was his last novel. If you like his style of writing and the society "dish" - you'll love this.

Ehh... That's all I can think to say. I'm sure there were redeeming quality to this story line, they just got lost in all the rambling.
