Publisher's Summary

With the literary chops of Bonfire of the Vanities and the dizzying decadence of The Wolf of Wall Street, The Fall of Princes takes listeners into a world of hedonistic highs and devastating lows, weaving a visceral tale about the lives of these young men, winners all...until someone changes the rules of the game. Goolrick paints a magnificently authentic portrait of an era, tense and stylish, perfectly mixing adrenaline and melancholy.
Stunning in its acute observations about great wealth and its absence, and deeply moving in its depiction of the ways in which these men learn to cope with both extremes, the novel travels from New York to Paris to Los Angeles to Italy to Las Vegas to London on a journey that is as startling as it is starkly revealing - a true tour de force.

Critic Reviews

"A dark, intoxicating morality tale.... With his impeccable prose, Goolrick focuses his unflinching eye on the grittiness beneath the sleek façade of nightclubs, fashion, and monied Manhattan extravagance. Beautifully crafted, seductive, and provocative." (Garth Stein, author of A Sudden Light and The Art of Racing in the Rain)

Hauntingly Beautiful

This is one of the very best fiction books I have listened to in four years as an audible member. R.C . Bray brilliant as the narrator.
