Rich Boy by Sharon Pomerantz

August 2010

I was lucky enough to read an advance copy of Sharon Pomerantz’s debut novel last spring. RICH BOY reminded me a lot of Herman Wouk’s classic MARJORIE MORNINGSTAR, a book I’ve always loved. Like Herman did with Marjorie, Sharon just dropped me into the world of Robert Vishniak, a middle-class young man who finds himself in New York’s high society.

Meeting a stranger on an airplane leads Elyse into a risky affair that jeopardizes her place in the community and her safe, albeit stale, marriage in Kim Wright's debut, LOVE IN MID-AIR.

RICH BOY is Sharon Pomerantz’s story of a middle-class Jewish boy who creates a new identity to suit the highest circles of Manhattan society.
