"Waiting On" Wednesday: Rich Boy

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Rich Boy
By Sharon Pomerantz
Publication Date: August 2

From Amazon:

Robert Vishniak is the favored son of Oxford Circle, a working-class Jewish neighborhood in 1970s Philadelphia. Handsome and clever, Robert glides into the cloistered universities of New England, where scions of unimaginable wealth and influence stand shoulder to shoulder with scholarship paupers like himself who wash dishes for book money. The doors that open there lead Robert to the highest circles of Manhattan society during the heart of the Reagan boom where everything Robert has learned about women, through seduction and heartbreak, pays off. For a brief moment, he has it all...but the world in which he finds himself is not the world from which he comes, and a chance encounter with a beautiful girl from the old neighborhood, and the forgotten life she reawakens, threatens to unravel his carefully constructed new identity.

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?
