內容簡介

紐約貴婦現形記,一個人類學家眼中的曼哈頓母親群像。

「我非常喜歡這本回憶錄,簡直愛不釋手!這本書機鋒處處,Martin用人類學家的眼睛分析紐約上東城的母親們,非常有啟發性!敏銳中帶著刻薄,但同時也寬厚、風趣、感人且旁徵博引。已經很久沒讀過這般精彩的書了!」
-- 《虎媽的戰歌》 作者/蔡美兒

當Wednesday Martin首度踏上紐約上東區時,她完全不知道該穿什麼樣的衣服,擺什麼樣的衣櫃,選什麼樣的學校。一群光鮮亮麗、連手肘都完美無瑕的母親們把她給嚇壞了!她感到迷惑,也覺得自己不受歡迎,直到她用人類學家的眼睛觀察這個地方。她分析這個"部落"的婚配、移民型態、教養孩子的方法、戀物癖、打扮的方式、神奇的淨化儀式、認親的程序、以及怪異的真實場景:性別隔離...。從此,她開始享受起她的新生活。突然有一天,她的世界整個翻轉了,因為她發現了更多她私底下稱為"曼哈頓藝妓"的這些女人的秘密...


An instant #1 New York Times bestseller, Primates of Park Avenue is an “amusing, perceptive and…deliciously evil” (The New York Times Book Review) memoir of the most secretive and elite tribe—Manhattan’s Upper East Side mothers.’

When Wednesday Martin first arrives on New York City’s Upper East Side, she’s clueless about the right addresses, the right wardrobe, and the right schools, and she’s taken aback by the glamorous, sharp-elbowed mommies around her. She feels hazed and unwelcome until she begins to look at her new niche through the lens of her academic background in anthropology. As she analyzes the tribe’s mating and migration patterns, childrearing practices, fetish objects, physical adornment practices, magical purifying rituals, bonding rites, and odd realities like sex segregation, she finds it easier to fit in and even enjoy her new life. Then one day, Wednesday’s world is turned upside down, and she finds out there’s much more to the women who she’s secretly been calling Manhattan Geishas.

“Think Gossip Girl, but with a sociological study of the parents” (InStyle.com), Wednesday’s memoir is absolutely “eye-popping” (People). Primates of Park Avenue lifts a veil on a secret, elite world within a world—the strange, exotic, and utterly foreign and fascinating life of privileged Manhattan motherhood.
