Where are today's Right Places, those exclusive locations where the privileged live and play? You may be in for a surprise. For as Stephen Birmingham shows, in the same witty, penetrating style that characterized his other studies of the elite, the Right Places could be just about anywhere, from Sun Valley, Idaho to Kansas City, Missouri (yes! Kansas City!), from rich, snobbish Fairfield County, Connecticut, to the sedate pages of the Philadelphia Social Register.

About the Author:

Stephen Birmingham is a preeminent social historian, known for his books The Right People, Real Lace, and The Grandees. He allows his reader unparalleled access to the most exclusive society sets, and tells their stories with great warmth and wit.

Review:

[A] good time...glossy, gossipy, brightly anecdotal. (The Washington Post)

[Stephen Birmingham’s] half-gossip, half-social commentary will keep the Beautiful-People watchers happy. (The Christian Science Monitor)
