AN ESSAY IN ATTITUDES
Saw this in today's WSJ...looks like a good read
I've got to read this. I love Louis Auchincloss. Being a low WASP from a humble background, I like to read his books just to see how the other half lived. I enjoyed reading Stephen Birmingham's books too.
Louis Auchincloss has incredible insight to his own class. It's unusual for someone to write about themselves so well. He doesn't just write about the clothes they wear or the parties they go to. He gets right down to the way old WASPs think and their attitude towards the rest of the world. It ususally takes an outsider to have such perspective.
