I'm about 100 pages into this book about scandal and high society in San Francisco. Oh the Glory of it All is written by Sean Wilsey, stepson of the famous socialite Dede Wilsey. (You may remember Dede from earlier this month when she sponsored Opera in the Park). Thanks to Kate and mom for passing this book on to me.
Sean paints vivid portraits of his "evil stepmother" and wealthy San Francisco society. Pacific Height mansions, Napa weekend homes, helicopters, Trader Vic's, galas, 30 karat diamonds...it's a different world! And a very juicy world at that. At one point Sean's still married father was dating Dede, Danielle Steel and Dinah Shore all at the same time. Anyone who lives in San Francisco or reads the society pages would definitely enjoy this book.
