One of our most provocative journalists, Michael Gross has cornered the market for insiders’ stories of the most bewitching and private worlds of the privileged, very rich, talented and beautiful.

In books that offer an unprecedented blend of broadsheet gravitas and tabloid entertainment, he’s taken delighted readers inside the glorified worlds of fashion, culture and NYC real estate to reveal secrets, scandals and stories of sex, power, money and ego.

William D. Cohan, the former Wall Street M&A investment banker for Lazard Frères and New York Times bestselling author of three books about Wall Street, joins him for what’s sure to be a riveting, insightful and delicious conversation about the power brokers, publishers, geniuses and visionaries who made New York City the center of the fashion and business world.

Brief Bio

With three New York Times bestsellers to his credit, Michael Gross is recognized as one of America’s most provocative writers — “a premier chronicler of the rich,” in the words of Gay Talese. The late Dominick Dunne called his books “social history at its finest.” His specialty, deconstructing the most privileged lives and revealing the reality behind carefully constructed images, is well-suited to these skeptical times. He was recently named Editor-in-Chief of Avenue, New York’s original society magazine. He is also a Contributing Editor of Departures, the travel and luxury magazine, which has called him a “master chronicler of behind-closed-doors lives.”
