Charlie Croker was once a fabled college football star and is now a late-middle-aged Atlanta real estate entrepeneur-turned conglomerate king, whose expansionist ambitions and outsize ego have at last hit up against reality.
Charlie has a 28,000 acre quail shooting plantation, a young and demanding second wife and a half-empty downtown tower with a staggering load of debt. Tom Wolfe was the razor sharp chronicler of the 1980s and now boldly turns to dissect greed-obsessed America on the cusp of the millenium.
