The author of Sin in the Second City and American Rose, Karen Abbott, has offered up another early endorsement of House of Outrageous Fortune: Fifteen Central Park West, the World’s Most Powerful Address. “Both an incisive social commentary on our modern Gilded Age and an irresistible peek behind the walls of 15 Central Park West, otherwise known as Limestone Jesus,” she says. “With characteristic audacity and wit, Michael Gross has deftly chronicled the immense egos (and bank accounts) of the nouveau riche who reside at Manhattan’s most coveted address.”
