Vanity, vanity, vanity
Before Walter Kirn was the bestselling author of Up In the Air, he was a struggling writer with a baby on the way in Montana. Looking to make a little extra cash and potentially glean some inspiration for writing material, Kirn accepted a very peculiar job – to deliver a handicapped dog to a member of one of the most prestigious families in the world – the Rockefellers. Even though he had never heard of Clark Rockefeller specifically, Kirn knew the Rockefellers to be a widespread and eccentric family, and assumed his benefactor was a more reclusive member of the family. After a long and difficult journey, Kirn arrived in New York City and met the man who would forever change his perception of truth, reality, friendship, and deception.
