For those of us who will never tell stories about the dashing Yale graduate from a well-to-do family that we met on a fox hunt, this book is a glimpse inside the fabulous Park Avenue apartments and country estates. From there, you may be able to see forever even though the view is not pretty. It doesn't take long for the voyeuristic pleasure to become secondary to the real story -- of family, friendship, loyalty, and betrayal. Few of the actors in this story are undamaged, with the possible exception of Brooke Astor herself: her headstone says it all: "I had a wonderful life."
