9780099503170: Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers & Acquisitions is the story of Tommy Quinn, a recent Georgetown graduate who has just landed the job of his dreams as an investment banker at J. S. Spenser, and the perfect girl, Frances Sloan, the daughter of one of New York's oldest moneyed families. As he travels from the most exclusive ballrooms of the Racquet and Tennis Club to the stuffiest boardrooms of J. S. Spenser, from the golf links of Piping Rock to the bedrooms of Park Avenue, and from the debaucheries on the yacht of a Mexican billionaire to the Ritalin-strewn prep-school dorm of his younger brother, he finds that the job and the girl are not what they once seemed.

Sharply written, fast-paced and bitingly witty, Mergers & Acquisitions is a compulsively readable story of Manhattan's young, ambitious and wealthy. Set against the backdrop of money, lust, power, corruption, cynicism, energy and excitement that is Wall Street, it is suffused with an authenticity that only an author who lives in that world can provide. A former investment banker at JPMorgan, Vachon offers an insider's point of view on the financial scene, and he knows the moneyed turf of Manhattan inside out.

Review:

"Wickedly funny and smartly written" ( Financial Times)

"Dana Vachon exposes the carnal and financial lusts of his generation's privileged and ambitious as few others have in recent years. And he knows his Ferragamos from his Dolce and Gabbanas, which is refreshing for a guy" ( Candace Bushnell)

"[A] smart, satisfying roman clef... The story is fast-paced, and his overblown characters are wildly engaging" ( Washington Post)

"A ruthless novel about investment bankers and mindless sex in the Big Apple. Think McInerney updated" ( Tatler)

"An expertly observed portrait of modern Manhattan life" ( Arena)

From the Publisher:

A stylish and hilarious novel about the lives and loves of well-to-do young Manhattanites in their first year on Wall Street - destined to become one of the year's most talked-about debuts.
