Irreverent, poignant, and revealing, this meditation on the sweet temptation of wealth and the vainglorious quest for paradise as they exist in Aspen, Colorado, features a "cast of characters (that) includes such barn-size satirical targets as exclusive health clubs, over-the-hill drug dealers and movie stars and rock stars of wattages bright and dim" (The New Republic).

About the Author:

Carter Journalism Institute at New York University. He lives in New York City.

From Library Journal:

Silver boomtown in the 1880s, bust a decade later due to the adoption of the gold standard, Aspen, Colorado, now is home to celebrities, Saab police cruisers, and a stagecoach taxi service whose equine employees are fitted with diapers. Working here for two years as cabbie, caterer, and newspaper reporter, Conover serves up an enticing melange appropriate both for stargazers hooked on the lifestyles of the rich and famous and pop sociologists. Rubbing shoulders with people as diverse as John Denver, Hunter S. Thompson, New Age cultists, and a 1980s miner, he offers intriguing commentary on modern Aspen's change from a planned utopia, combining skiing with high culture, to a sybaritic playground. A good addition to larger public library and regional collections.
