The Two Mrs. Grenvilles

The Two Mrs. Grenvilles - Dominick Dunne I read this in hardcover form many years ago and I can certainly say that my tastes really must have grown a lot!


What should have been a very interesting look at a 'Cinderella' relationship, quickly became a tedious look at the excesses of post war America of the ultra-rich.

I could not stand smarmy Billy, his Mother (can we say trite?) who excelled at being the martyr and Ann who was also a trite character and highly unlikable. I know that Ann was supposed to be written this way, but couldn't she had at least one likable characteristic?

Still, this was an interesting look at how the other half lived at that period in time.
