About this product
- DescriptionPaisley Mischief is a delightfully droll satire set in the most exclusive private men's club on New York's Park Avenue. The Avenue Club is a place where rich banker-types meet in easy camaraderie and one wears trunks in the pool, because when you're the right sort of person, you're supposed to have thing to hide.When a famously brash movie producer applies for membership, long-simmering tensions at The Avenue rise to a boil. Who is Max Guberstein and where did he come from? Why does he want to join and most important, will he get in? These are the questions on everyone's mind, but it's left up to Dante Penfield, the club president's feckless nephew, and his resourceful roommate Audrey to figure out the answers.Offering an inside glimpse into the preppy world, this tightly plotted comedy rolls like a freight train toward its ingenious conclusion. Paisley Mischief is reminiscent of the best drawing room comedies with its hilariously drawn characters and their highly incompatible views of the world. You will be charmed!Lincoln MacVeagh is a lapsed WASP. As a boy, he could t imagine getting on an airplane without wearing a necktie. Raised in London, he went to boarding school at Groton and studied philosophy at Harvard. He w lives in New York City. Paisley Mischief is his first vel.
