Stephanie Clifford: The American Obsession With Status says
Wealth, ambition, and social status–Loeb Award-winning reporter Stephanie Clifford’s “superb debut” novel (Malcolm Gladwell) offers a modern take on these and other well-known American themes. Evelyn, the central character in Everybody Rise, is inevitably attracted to the pull of money and pretends to be someone she’s not to fit in–until her world comes crashing down. Clifford–who grew up in Seattle–will read excerpts from the novel and discuss inspirations behind the book in what’s sure to be a humorous–and poignant–social commentary of modern America. Clifford is a Metro reporter for The New York Times.
