Summary
Set in and around Palo Alto, amid the culture clash of new money and old (anti-establishment) values, this book is an unforgettable look at the way we live now. A young couple on the brink of marriage -- the charming Veblen and her fiancé Paul, a brilliant neurologist -- find their engagement in danger of collapse. Along the way they weather everything from each other's dysfunctional families, to the attentions of a seductive pharmaceutical heiress, to an intimate tete-a-tete with a very charismatic squirrel
