Not nearly as refined as the residents of Downton Abby, the Southern California elite portrayed in Katie Arnoldi’s The Wentworths (Overlook, 2008) provides an equally fascinating look into the lives of the very rich, very duplicitous, very distorted (unfortunately in this milieu, the distortion appears to be the new normal) Wentworth clan and their friends, servants, paramours and nemeses. This book is a black-humored novel of manners, with shifting perspectives deftly presented by Arnoldi. A delectable treat.
