Stephen Birmingham turns his eye to the great Irish-Catholic dynasties of America - violent, colorful, charming and charmed: the Kennedys, the Cuddihys, Buckleys and Bradys, and the California "Silver Kings", the Floods, Fairs, Mackays and O'Briens. Many of these families started with every disadvantage; fleeing from the great Irish potato famine, they arrived penniless in the slums of New York and Boston. But from desperate poverty and degradation they rose to fame and fortune, fueled by a powerful combination of driving energy, native wit, strong religion, stronger drink, and, of course, the luck of the Irish. Remarkable characters, warring families, and fluctuating fortunes - out of this rich material Birmingham has fashioned an extraordinary social history.

From the New York Times–bestselling author of “Our Crowd”: A novel of a powerful family, a cosmetics empire, and the dark secrets that could destroy both. Mireille “Mimi” Myerson took her grandfather’s struggling cosmetics company and turned it into an empire. But suddenly, as she prepares to launch a new perfume line, Mimi is faced with hidden threats at every turn. Her efforts to further expand the enormously successful Miray Corporation could be sabotaged from within by her own treacherous family, for there is a dangerous rot beneath the surface of the wealthy and aristocratic “Magnificent Myersons”: a dark tradition of lies, sexual perversity, and criminal activity that could undermine everything Mimi hopes to accomplish. With the discovery of her husband’s affair and the return of real estate magnate Michael Horowitz, her first and most enduring love, Mimi must determine whom she can trust—especially in light of the shocking revelations that are about to emerge regarding the birth of the Miray Corporation. In both his bestselling nonfiction (“Our Crowd”, The Right People) and fiction (Carriage Trade, The Auerbach Will) author Stephen Birmingham has demonstrated an unparalleled understanding of the ways of America’s extremely rich. This unique knowledge comes into glorious play in his blistering novel Shades of Fortune, a thrilling and unforgettable breakneck ride through the darkest passageways of wealth and success.
