“Bennett demonstrates a real talent for evoking the affectless, indulgent ‘eccentricities’ of the surpassingly (and perpetually) wealthy … Bennett manages it all deftly. He can weave a tale and has the chops to keep it all in a literary vein … this is a good book with a crackerjack ending.” — The Globe and Mail “Bennett’s storytelling is effortless in its pace and time shifts, and his dialogue glints like a sharpened knife.” — The Walrus BackLit bonus material includes an author interview, discussion questions, and recommended reading.
