Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund

Author Jill Kargman and Julia Van Nice

We found our beach book for this summer at a recent cocktail reception with New York Times best selling author Jill Kargman of Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund at Tory Burch's store in Chicago at 66 E. Walton. This new book tells the story about Holly Talbott and her lifestyle marriage with the founder of a huge New York hedge fund. Holly gets familiar with the life filled with luncheons (lunches are called luncheons because they take eons), and withering botox stares from her mother-in-law when she finds out Mr. Hedgefund is cheating! Is there life after Wall Street? Jill Kargman has written for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and other big publications, plus she has three books under her belt. The author grew up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan (as the daughter of the former president of Chanel) and is the perfect story teller for a juicy and hilarious New York drama.
