An irresistible look at the glamour and subterfuge of New York's art world, from bestselling author and Hollywood star Steve Martin.

Lacey Yeager is beautiful, captivating, and ambitious enough to take the New York art world by storm. She begins her career at Sotheby's, amidst the winks and nods of the fabulously wealthy. But hungry for more - and pursued by a whiff of scandal - Lacey migrates to edgy Downtown, watching Hirsts and Warhols multiply in value before her eyes.

Charming men and women, old and young, rich and even richer, Lacey's ascendancy seems assured. But when the art world bubble looks set to burst, a secret from her past rears its head, threatening to undermine everything she has worked for...

MEDIA REVIEWS
An astringently witty tour of Manhattan's extravagantly booming auction houses, pricey little galleries and their glitzy hinterland. En route, modish fads and fraudulence, vacuous collectors, dubious sales-room operators and artists who are dab hands at self-promotion are deftly impaled. -- Peter Kemp * SUNDAY TIMES *
Effortlessly stylish ... Martin is so multitalented as to make you sick -- Alfred Hickling * GUARDIAN *
Gripping * DAILY EXPRESS *
Told with charm and pizzaz -- Emma Hagestadt * INDEPENDENT *

“Surprising and Vibrant”

A refreshing and attractive novel full of one liners and wit. The book is told in a strange way, a first person's account of someone else's story. Our narrator is reliable in interpreting Lacey's... More
