Louis Auchincloss, who has in the past explored and exposed the worlds of Wall Street and Park Avenue with a keen and merciless pen, now turns his attention to a small but elegant museum on Central Park West and to the private lives of those whose commitment to art inevitably becomes confused with the pursuit of power. In this world, a romance conducted with a verve and articulateness worthy of Jane Austen and office power plays that would make Ivan Boesky blush seem totally appropriate. The tangle of art and business, idealism and venality, ambition and the yearning for love, is deftly unraveled, and, most satisfying of all, the tale ends in a highly satisfying way with both the principals and the reader wiser, happier, and more enlightened.
