epub The Astor Orphan epub

by Alexandra Aldrich

AN ASTOR DESCENDANT,
RICH ONLY IN NAME AND HISTORY . . .

The Astor Orphan is an unflinching memoir by a direct descendant of John Jacob Astor, Alexandra Aldrich.

She brilliantly tells the story of her eccentric, fractured family; her 1980s childhood of bohemian neglect in the squalid attic of Rokeby, the family's Hudson Valley Mansion; and her brave escape from the clan. Aldrich reaches back to the Gilded Age when the Astor legacy began to come undone, leaving the Aldrich branch of the family penniless and squabbling over what was left. Mordantly funny, sometimes shocking, it's a dazzling debut set amid the ruins of a once prominent family.
