The Big Spenders was Lucius Beebe's last and many think his best book. The information, the interesting subject matter and the ease of reading, made it a book that I could not put down

The Big Spenders was Lucius Beebe's last and many think his best book. In it he describes the consumption of the Gilded Age. Beebe enjoys it all immensely. The information, the interesting subject matter and the ease of reading, made it a book that I could not put down. Mr. Beebe's association with many of the people made it all the more interesting and intriguing!!!! Please write more Mr. Beebe!!!!

Although the contents glitter, the stockpiling narrative begins to pall and Jenkins' eye-rolling style becomes irritating.

There are Vanderbilts, Astors, and Rockefellers; Fords, Krupps, and Khans; entertainers and merchant princes', mavericks like the Rev. Ike; and an unreasonably long entry on the merely moneyed Fanny Lucy Houston. Although the contents glitter, the stockpiling narrative begins to pall and Jenkins' eye-rolling style becomes irritating. But the motivations-not just e to astonish: Aristotle Onassis, a self-styled Odysseus, bought Skorpios because Ithaca wasn't for sale.
