TABLES.

 
9780747279709: TABLES.

Tables is the spectacular restaurant that Mario Fermi dreams of opening in Manhattan--a place for the people who "matter" in the city.

Tables is the plaything of a real estate czar who demands success, giving Mario an unlimited budget and an impossible deadline.

Tables is what Francis Mckinnon has been waiting for to show her brilliance as an interior designer and prove that she's not just the decorative wife of a Wall Street banker.

TABLES is the story of a blackmailer who distorts with vicious humor. He chooses victims with care--for their wealth, for their reputations, for their helplessness.

"An extraordinary first novel." --Stephen Birmingham

From Publishers Weekly:

In his first novel, art historian Lucas proves to be a terrifically entertaining tattletale on the world of Manhattan's monied movers and shakers. His upper-crust characters like to be seen dining at Rudi's, a restaurant run by tall, dark and ambitious Mario Fermi. After a spectacular fight with his temperamental boss, Mario storms out the door and soon thereafter opens Tables, a rival establishment. Trailing behind him is a juicy cast that includes his coked-up girlfriend Maggie, an art dealer; her alcoholic brother, Rudi's lover; gorgeous socialite and gifted interior designer Frances McKinnon; her pleasant, reserved husband; and a savvy actress who's scratched her way to the top. The key ingredient in their lives is blackmail: almost everyone on these pages is forking over huge sums to one unknown, detestable party. The fates of all are set on a collision course when Frances and Mario (who, as the reader is told repeatedly, are of the ages to be mother and son) launch an indiscreet affair. This is a surefire bestseller, bubbling with all the intrigue money can buy, laced with a wicked shot of vitriol. 75,000 first printing; major ad/promo.
