George Rush and Joanna Molloy have once again caught the rest of the town snoozing. They call Rogues’ Gallery “yummy” in today’s Daily News while hinting about a legal attack on the book. There’s a review in today’s News, too. “The nut of Gross’ story is the power and influence wielded behind the scenes by the monied,” says Sherryl Connelly. She also calls the book “salacious” and “exhaustive,” praises (and damns) the depth of research behind it, and says it “forays into the personal, sometimes seamy, histories of major names” — singling out the late Jane Englehard, Annette de la Renta and Jayne Wrightsman. If it wasn’t for all that research, those forays wouldn’t be so revealing and the legal sabres might not be rattling.
