The Great Wall of New York

The Great Wall of New York

A novel by

Fiction. In this novel the haute monde behave badly in a wildly comic, high-speed ride down the slippery slope of wealth and power in New York City. The GREAT WALL OF NEW YORK is an antic examination of how the other one percent lives. Romance, intrigue, financial shenanigans, and murder are only a few of the items on the menu. Stir in a little sex, politics and religion and you've got an appetizingly funny stew sauced off with the creme de la creme. "Like Wyndham Lewis, Nathaniel West, and Terry Southern before him, Kevin Barthelme fine tunes his Geiger counter to hunt down the peacock in the mineshaft of the vanities and flush it back out into the light of day!"--Alan Jones. The book is illustrated with drawings by Robert Grossman, whose work has appeared in The New York Times, The Nation, The New Yorker and Rolling Stone.
