Dispatches From the Gilded Age

Julia Reed, a Southerner of the finest variety, with her keen eye, sharp wit, and fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants way of living regales us with her profiles of André Leon Talley, Madeleine Albright, the Bush Twins, and many others in this posthumous novel. Traveling from the tables at Le Bernardin to Doe's Eat Place in the Delta to Africa and Cuba, Reed shares the magic that was in the way she saw the world, and it's fun to spend time with her again between the pages.
