Set in a fictional building on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, this novel chronicles the lives of its various inhabitants, from the resident dowager, Mrs. Houghton, to the upstart nouveaux riches Annalisa and Paul Rice. The book starts rather slowly, but the intrigue of the various characters pulls you in. The book has a good insight into the zeitgeist of life in New York among the rich and not-so-famous.
