THE GODS OF GREENWICH

Author(s): 

Vonnegut’s brilliant novel uses his familiarity with Wall Street to provide an insider’s view of the high-risk world of hedge funds that’s grounded in facts and atmosphere. A female assassin, man-eating polar bears, deals and double crosses combine with humor and excitement for a book you won’t want to put down.

Jimmy Cusack is a tough kid from a bad neighborhood and a self-made man on Wall Street. Then things go bad. His hedge fund collapses. The bank is foreclosing on his condominium and his wife is pregnant. He takes a job with a fund that seems to be impervious to the ups and downs of finance. But he soon realizes he didn’t understand the deal he was making with the devil. (MINOTAUR, Apr., 336 pp., $24.99)
