PRINCES is a real page-turner, and Robin Lester is the perfect writer to expose the tender underbelly of New York's private school scene--here, he lifts the curtain to show us how a gifted headmaster pulls it off . . . Or doesn't.
John McEnroe Author of You Cannot Be Serious
Head of School Tom West is a hero for our times in this witty and sparklingly literate evocation of the way we live now.
Peter Blauner, author of Slow Motion Riot and Slipping Into Darkness
Fiendishly clever, funny, entertaining, and often downright mischievous, Princes offers the compelling behind the scenes intrigue of a private school's headmaster ultimately going to the mat with the Machiavellian one-percenters of Manhattan.
Julie Holland, MD author, Weekends At Bellevue: Nine Years on the Nightshift at the Psych ER
Princes is hilarious, cutting and utterly entertaining. This Machiavellian tale is told by a consummate insider and, in the style of Bonfire of the Vanities, will leave certain readers scrambling to discern what facts may lie beneath the fiction.
Daphne Uviller, author, Super in the City and Hotel No Tell
Princes is an engrossing, authentic story about an independent school in the complicated, exciting and exhilarating city of New York.
Edes Gilbert, former head of the Spence School, New York; author, Alone Together
