Book Giveaway-The Recessionistas by Alexandra Lebenthal

Alexandra Lebenthal, who is active on the New York social scene, has written THE RECESSIONISTAS, a debut novel about four socialites whose perfect Upper East Side lives get turned upside down when the economic collapse wreaks havoc on their pampered existences.



In a tale that is ripped from the headlines, a group of powerful New Yorkers suddenly encounter social upheaval, deception, and scandal. Some will find their way out of disaster while others, after making dangerous choices, dig their own graves. This story of expulsion from a modern-day Garden of Eden captures what happens when lives that were only designed to acquire more suddenly face the prospect of a great deal less.


I have three copies of this book to giveaway. The contest is open to US and Canada and winners will be chosen on August 15. Don't forget to leave an email in the comments so I can contact you if you are a winner.

  4. When I first read this review I thought of all the Madoff victims and how his ponzi scam had effected many people and life savings. This book really sounds like a good read. Thanks for the opportunity.
