Praise

Advanced Praise for Our Kind of People

“Carol Wallace has written an exuberant novel of manners for our own gilded age. And as one might expect from the co-author of The Official Preppy Handbook and To Marry an English Lord, not a detail is out of place, from the calling cards to the kid gloves. New money and old traditions combust on contact; Our Kind of People is rich, rousing, and beautifully researched.” –Stacy Schiff, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Cleopatra

“Evoking the excitement and glamour of a booming 19th-century New York, Our Kind of People charts one family’s rise, fall, and ultimate triumph in a changing world. Wallace fills her world with careful historical detail and an acute understanding of the nuances of New York high society.” –Julia Kelly, author of The Light Over London

“Move over, Edith Wharton! I adored Our Kind of People, enthralled by its utterly engaging, not-quite-socially acceptable Wilcox family, and the stratifications they endured and conquered in 19th Century New York. What a rare pleasure in these distractible times to read a novel I couldn’t put down, so happy to root for the high and mighty getting their just deserts. Thank you and brava, Carol Wallace, for giving us the fictional key to a long-ago city of dreams.” —Elinor Lipman, author of Good Riddance and On Turpentine Lane

“A delightful glimpse into the delicate yet cutthroat world of gilded age society, Our Kind of People is a reminder that in the ever-shifting sands of New York’s high society, one truth remains constant: that a little audacity and a lot of heart can go a long way.” —Bryn Turnbull, author of The Woman Before Wallis
