About the book:

A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK A LOS ANGELES TIMES BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR A CHICAGO TRIBUNE FAVORITE BOOK OF THE YEAR "It's hard to criticize a writer who can make you laugh out loud on every third page."-NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW A NATIONAL BESTSELLER, Snobbery examines the discriminating qualities in all of us. With dishy detail, Joseph Epstein skewers all manner of elitism in contemporary America. He offers his arch observations of the new footholds of snobbery: food, fashion, high-achieving children, schools, politics, being with-it, name-dropping, and much more. Clever, incisive, and immensely entertaining, Snobbery explores the shallows and depths of status and taste - with enviable results. "[Epstein is] a snobographer of the first order... He is a great wit, simply incapable of penning an unquotable sentence." - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE BOOK REVIEW "Marvelous . . . Some books are necessary, some are wonderful, few are both. In that select group belongs [Snobbery] . . . Most treasurable." - LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW "Wonderfully engaging . . . One thing is for sure: when you go to the beach this summer, the witty, erudite people will be reading this book." - WALL STREET JOURNAL
