Carl Djerassi crafts a shrewd collection of comedies of manners, exposing the foibles of elite tribesóbusiness executives, chefs, scientists, professors, musicians, and other clever characters. They spar in battles of one-upmanship using class, education, gender, or prestige as their weapons, sometimes leaving damaged bystanders in their wake but sometimes finding their superiority deflated by unexpected turns of events.

Carl Djerassi is the author of the novels Cantorís Dilemma; The Bourbaki Gambit; Marx, Deceased; Menachemís Seed; and NO, and of plays, essays, poetry, and short stories that have been published in twenty languages. Renowned as both a writer and a scientist, he is emeritus professor of chemistry at Stanford University and recipient of 30 honorary doctorates as well as many international scientific honors. He lives in San Francisco, London, and Vienna.
