This well written collection of short stories about the rich mostly women and mostly those born in the 70 s is similar to the work done by John Cheever John Updike and Richard Yates Revolutionary Road 40 or 50 years ago It pokes fun and not so fun at the rich and privileged whose emphasis is on the good life boarding schools nannies buying that great apartment in NYC Caitlin Macy pulls the rug out from under the rich and famous Each story presents us with a character only to have this character fall flat on her face in some way You will be happier that each of these shallow creatures learned her lesson after reading the stories I gave it a 5 because the writing and premise of each story really worked and I was entertained thoroughly The author a graduate of Yale and the good life knows what she s talking about so you know you re getting a front row seat to the truth I recommend mostly to women who can relate the best but a wonderful read for anyone who likes short stories that work which is sometimes no easy feat
