From the Publisher:
The only Jewish family in a Fifth Avenue building of WASPs, the Rothschilds took in their young grandson, Matt, after his mother left him for Italy and a fourth husband. Matt secretly wore his razor-tongued grandmother's dresses, shoplifted Barbies from FAO Schwarz, routinely disappointed his grandfather by showing no interest in sports, and got kicked out of nearly every elite private school in Manhattan. He was eventually sent to a boarding school (paid for by his grandmother's ransomed van Gogh). But as funny as his hijinks are on the page, at the time they were symptoms of the pain of being a Jewfroed, sexually confused kid, abandoned by his mother, and trying to fit in among the genteel world.
