By Tom Wolfe

An exhilarating account of Eighties excess that captures the effervescent spirit of New York, from one of the greatest writers of modern American prose

Sherman McCoy is a bond trader and self-appointed 'Master of the Universe'. He has a fashionable wife, a Park Avenue apartment and a Southern mistress. His spectacular fall begins the moment he is involved in a hit-and-run accident in the Bronx. Prosecutors, newspaper hacks, politicians and clergy close in on him, determined to bring him down.

Who's that?

An interesting read that has passages of quite dark humour and despite being set in the 80s has a relevance to many of our current times and society. With several of the characters involved demonstrating that self interest often trumps real (or perceived) moral or legal obligations it is a joy to try and identify who today mirrors their behaviour.
