Jonathan Dee
Jonathan Dee, a former Yalie and Paris Review alumnus, pulled an Edith Wharton with his recent novel The Privileges, an insider look at the messy lives of high-flying financiers. Dee’s work has invited comparisons to the original, the master, the be-all and end-all of prep-lit, Mr. F. Scott Fitzgerald. That’s enough for entrée into the pantheon.
