Reviews

"Best debut novel of romantic privilege and perils since This Side of Paradise, and best ironic novel of the North Shore--the gilded one, Long Island--since The Great Gatsby. Like his Octopus, Dorson's tale will grab you; you won't escape, but you will expire with a smile."--Charles Scribner III, author of The Shadow of God

Dorson boasts the perspective and talent to chronicle the elite of New York, from their sanctums on the Upper East Side--think Dorrian's and JG Melon--to their enclaves on Long Island. The book offers an irreverent, snappy portrayal of a world where black-tie is more common than blue jeans, and people care about where you prepped. --Elizabeth Brown, Quest Magazine

"The Catcher in the Rye meets Bright Lights, Big City."--Christopher Beha, author of Arts & Entertainments
