Gently satirical and rich with drama, the novel moves from the Gilded Age to the Great Depression as it projects George Apleys world-and subtly reveals a life in which success and accomplishment mask disappointment and regret, a life of extreme and enviable privilege that is nonetheless an imperfect life.
