The Fall of Princes
by Robert Goolrick




Overview -
"A heart-wrenching, beautiful, darkly comic, deeply necessary tale that stuns again and againwith razor-sharp prose and glittering wit." --T a Obreht, author of The Tiger's Wife

"A dark, intoxicating morality tale . . . A world of excess and decadence and the price paid by some--but by no means all . . . Seductive and provocative." --Garth Stein, author of A Sudden Light and The Art of Racing in the Rain

In the spellbinding new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robert Goolrick, 1980s Manhattan shimmers like the mirage it was, as money, power, and invincibility seduce a group of young Wall Street turks. Together they reach the pinnacle, achieving the kind of wealth that grants them access to anything--and anyone. Until, one by one, they fall. The Fall of Princes takes readers on a journey that is both starkly revealing and dazzlingly entertaining.

"Each chapter is haunting and compulsively readable, written in a bold, brash voice that aims for over-the-top and miraculously sticks the landing." --Entertainment Weekly

"While Goolrick] describes a way of life that may never be possible again, he also manages to convey its beautiful, tragic appeal in an unforgettable rush of prose . . . Irresistible, bittersweet." --The Boston Globe

"Compelling, wholly seductive." --Booklist

"Brilliantly well done." --New York Daily News

"A vivid writer with a penchant for electric scenes." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"While The Fall of Princes patrols territory marked by Tom Wolfe, Jay McInerney and Michael Lewis, Goolrick writes with an immediacyand precision that make this world feel as if it is all his own . . . Painfully beautiful." --The Washington Post
