Bobos in Paradise
The New Upper Class and How They Got ThereLarge Print - 2001
It used to be pretty easy to distinguish between the bourgeois world of capitalism and the bohemian counterculture. The bourgeois worked for corporations, wore gray, and went to church; bohemians were artists and intellectuals. But now, the lines are blurred: It's hard to tell an espresso-sipping professor from a cappuccino-gulping banker. Laugh and sob as you read David Brooks' observations on the new dominant class. Bobos in Paradise is a witty and serious look at the cultural consequences of the information age and a penetrating description of how we live now.
