Hedge Fund Wives
In this amazingly timely story about what the wealthy do when Wall Street lays an egg, the author of Gilding Lily once again delivers a witty and insightful treatment of today's woman, as she explores the sacrifices they make, the bargains they strike, the rules they follow, and what happens when it all starts to fall apart.
Who could have guessed that Wall Street would...more
Marcy is the protagonist which I immediately took a liking to. She struggles with very real situations that real life women can easily relate to. Despite her wealth, she remained humble and had a sympathetic and clear view of the world and it was interesting to see her battle against the facades of the supposed upperc ...more
It is unlikely that Larry Ellison would read a book titled Hedge Fund Wives, but if he did, he would be surprised to learn that he was a co-founder of Apple. Not to dwell on one factual error, but Mr. Ellison is the founder of Oracle Corporation. He served on Apple's board for a short time. This book is filled with errors that a junior editor should have caught.
Reading this book in 2015 gives me the benefit of hindsight. I had the distinct feeling that the author qu ...more

What I did not like was the Warren character. I think he had too small a part to play. He seems great, the hero and then he falls and then he sneaks back in the end. I would have liked to see more of his relationship with Marcy. It is hard for me to believe that women today actually p ...more

wealthiest people in our country. It exposes the excessive
materialism, shallowness, feelings of entitlement, and obsession with wealth and status which permeate this world. Written through the eyes of a Minnesotan woman, it was easy to understand her departure from these values and behaviors.
The last few chapters had some redeeming qualities depicting women in a more competent manor and actually providing for themselves. Hence the three starts, or it would have been a one star rating.
The book is fairly predictable and has a fairy-tale ending. So if you're reeling from a divorce, I would not recommend it because real life doesn't end as this book does.
Her writing has appeared in dozens of publications, including the New York Times, Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, InStyle, Marie Claire, Town & Country and Vogue.
