Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

America has a dirty little secret about its ultra-rich. In a country built on meritocracy and populated by the world’s unwashed masses, a caste system of old, powerful, and somewhat batty aristocratic families persists. In The Red Cadillac: The Mysterious World of Old Money, Peter W. Cookson Jr. unveils America's aristocracy through autobiography. Cookson’s mother and father, two bohemian actors, divorced early in his childhood. Their paths diverged wildly: his mother plunging into poverty and alcoholism, while his father remarried an heiress. Cookson describes growing up part West Coast wild "Apache," and part East Coast Old Money hanger-on. As American political debate crescendos around taxes for the super-rich, this a refreshing dip into the (shallow) gene pool of a secretive subgenre of the wealthy. Cookson browns a nice little roast on this bonfire of the vanities. --Benjamin Moebius
