Angelica Baker presents Our Little Racket
In conversation with Julia Pierpont
Angelica Baker’s debut novel Our Little Racket is the story of five women whose lives are dramatically changed by the downfall of a financial titan, and a captivating look at wealth, envy, and secrets. When the investment bank Weiss & Partners is shuttered, CEO Bob D'Amico must fend off allegations of malfeasance, as well as the judgment and resentment of his community. As panic builds, five women in his life must scramble to negotiate power on their own terms and ask themselves what, if anything, is worth saving. With precision, insight, and grace, Angelica Baker weaves a timeless social novel about the rituals of intimacy and community; of privilege and information; of family and risk; of etiquette and taboo. Baker discusses her work with Julia Pierpont, author of the bestselling novel Among the Ten Thousand Things, followed by a signing and Q&A.
