“Holly Peterson writes about the rich with acute understanding and a drop-dead eye for detail.
The funniest, sexiest ride in the limo lane since The Bonfire of the Vanities.”
Tina Brown, author of The Diana Chronicles

“Holly Peterson has a keen observer’s eye for the frailties, foibles, and frivolities of present day upper
class life among the rich of New York City. She understands her territory well and writes with authority.”
Dominick Dunne, author of A Season In Purgatory

“Brisk, crisp, knowing and fun.”
Christopher Buckley, author of They Eat Puppies, Don’t They?

“Holly Peterson takes us on a locomotive tour through the living rooms of the Upper East Side and the
newsrooms of the media elite. The trip is sexy, hilarious, and heart-wrenching.”
Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City

“I leapt on The Manny and devoured it in one sitting. It’s a riveting portrait of millionaires’ life on ‘The
Grid’, full of eye-watering details. And it made me instantly want to hire a male nanny…… for me!”
Sophie Kinsella, author of Wedding Night
