Hedge Fund Wives

By Tatiana Boncompagni

The fall from the top can be a long one…

Eager to play the part of dutiful wife, down-to-earth Marcy Ermerson agrees to relocate from Chicago to New York City when her husband is offered a big-time job managing a hedge fund. Leaving behind her own dreams, Marcy forgoes finding a new job in favour of trying to start a family. Besides, as she soon discovers, hedge fund wives don’t work, they play. Hard.…

Although at first it’s fun to shop and party, Marcy quickly realizes that to find her feet in this new world of excess and superficiality she needs true friends. Only problem is behind every smile lurks a stab in the back.

But it’s not until her suddenly social climbing husband abruptly leaves her for his thinner, blonder mistress, that Marcy decides it’s time to stand on her own two feet and fight for the things that are far more important than money.

In the throes of the credit crunch, this tantalising tale is perfect for fans of Sex and the City and The Devil Wears Prada who still want a bit of bling for their buck.

”'In this salacious, delightful tale of New York movers and shakers, Boncompagni animates her rich, glamorous, scandalous creatures with a keen eye and irresistible energy…Readers fascinated by Upper East Side life will be mesmerized by Boncompagni’s sparkling depiction and may have to fight the temptation to read it all in one sitting.” - Publishers Weekly

‘A real-life New York socialite, Boncompagni knows her subject intimately. She can slip readers into a pair of high-heel Christian Louboutins and through the doors of a hedgie home themed in Chinese antiquities. Seeing how the moneyed set lives offers a funny - and sometimes sobering - look at people hogtied by their own wealth….’Washington Post -
