You hate Bonfire then? What about From Bauhaus To Our House? He was just taking potshots at rich people with that book but did you really feel sorry for his targets? Where's the cutoff? He coined "Me Decade" in 1976 for Mauve Gloves & Madmen, Clutter & Vine. I've read all of his books except this new one, which have you read?
As godawful as his writing style came to be (and it was mostly unbearable in his novels) he really did seem to capture a lot of 80s NYC for Bonfire Of The Vanities, not that I was there.
