Holly Talbott is the main character who is married to a very successful Hedge funder in New York named Tim. She is the perfect hedge fund wife who plays the part and fulfills her society obligations and puts up with all the other stuffy, stuck up wives.

Kiki is Holly’s wild and crazy friend and married to Tim’s brother. The family is not wild about Kiki and would prefer Holly to not hang out with her.

Holly and Kiki go out in trendy Williamsburg and are shocked to find Tim cheating with a younger woman. Forced to choose between living honestly, with integrity or playing the part and living a lie, Holly chooses to get a divorce and try out the single life again. This is a 'Sex and The City' kind of adventure as Holly and Kiki try to find love.

I loved this book, THE EX-MRS. HEDGEFUND. Ms. Kargman has a unique and witty writing style that keeps you turning the pages. Her descriptions are hilarious and descriptive. She makes up charts to explain the varying degrees of whatever she is describing. For example, her Blonde-O-Meter describes Ashy Blonde as a Locust Valley matron all the way through Platinum which equals a Porn Star. Truly a delightful read!

Ms. Kargman has several books on the New York Times Best Seller List and has written for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, Town & Country to name a few. She lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan with her husband and three children. Email her at
