The Hunger of the Wolf | Stephen Marche

The Hunger of the Wolf is a novel about the new class of billionaires that are emerging, and about their glorious and tortured lives which are shaped almost entirely by the forces of money. Spanning from the mills of Depression-era Pittsburgh to the Swinging London of the 1960s, from desolate Alberta to the factories of present-day China, it's the story of the Wylies, worth about twenty-seven billion dollars, how they made that money and the way they live now: in a lonely world defined by family secrets and the number of zeroes at the end of a number.

The following is excerpted from "The Hunger of the Wolf," available now from Simon & Schuster.
