The Palm Beach Story

type
  • Movie

The Palm Beach Story Set in a world ”where people had two pools, one to catch the morning sun, another the afternoon,” Pulitzer’s third novel about the rich and snooty promises fizzy, glamorous fun — the literary equivalent of a glass of champagne. To wit: Two NOKDs (”Not our kind, dear”) — an earnest, beautiful photographer working on a magazine spread about Palm Beach’s ”old guard,” and her Ted Turnerish boss — find true love with two of Palm Beach’s biggest players, a boozy, filthy rich pretty boy and an uptight heiress, and get to expose a half-baked Colombian drug cartel in the process. Trotting out the usual array of yachts, Ferraris, and bulimic baronesses, Pulitzer once again has a perfect, diamond-encrusted handle on her deeply superficial milieu. B-MH</p>
