The Paradise Suite

Bobos in Paradise and On Paradise Drive

The Paradise Suite

In hardcover together for the first time, New York Times columnist David Brooks’s acclaimed bestsellers, Bobos in Paradise and On Paradise Drive, with a new introduction by the author

David Brooks’s insightful, engaging, and hilarious observations on the nature of America and Americans have drawn comparisons to those of Malcolm Gladwell and Jerry Seinfeld. Christopher Buckley applauds him as “the smart, fun-to-read social critic of his generation.”

In Bobos in Paradise, Brooks coined a term as he explored the ascendance of the “bourgeois bohemian”—a new generation melding capitalist enterprise with counterculture values. On Paradise Drive delves deeper into the American character, wittily dissecting the nation’s ongoing search for personal utopia— the kind that can be achieved through hard work, profit, masterful living, and maybe a really great country house. Shrewd and sharp, yet genial and reasoned, The Paradise Suite confirms Brooks as a true public intellectual and one of the most insightful social commentators of his age.
