Mrs. Astor Regrets: The Hidden Betrayals of a Family Beyond Reproach by Meryl Gordon
If you are looking for a non-fiction book that seems more like a fabulous Vanity Fair article, this is would be it. The book delves into the final years of New York socialite and philanthropist Brooke Astor and her life on Park Ave.
Throw in her trust-fund living son Tony who is accused of mishandling his famous mother’s financial affairs, and you have one great (and true) story. It’s Oscar de la Renta dresses & grand larceny; a look into the Upper East and the New York court system.
This story is upper-class tabloid fodder. And so far it’s been a real page turner.
