Book Summary

Step into the world of Sherman McCoy...

One of Wall Street's top bond salesmen, he lives in a sumptuous fourteen-room duplex apartment on Park Avenue--"the Best Section of the capital of the Western World in the late twentieth century."  Then one day a bizarre incident in the Bronx thrusts him into the center of every racial, economic, sexual, social and political tension in New York City.

"Lively and full of insight.  Bonfire illuminates the modern madness that is New York in the 1980s with the intense precision of a laser beam."  --People

"A tale that moves from the dining salons of the Gold Coast to the detention cells of the Bronx, from the paneled offices of Wall Street to the tense streets of Harlem, and that does so with remarkable ease and confidence."  --Washington Post Book World
