Item description for The Hamptons Dictionary: The Essential Guide to Class Warfare by Plinio Pinto Miles Jaffe...

A Devil's Dictionary for the modern age, The Hamptons Dictionary is a wicked social satire and hysterical lexical send-up of the rich and famous who flock to the Hamptons each summer and the locals who count the minutes until Labor Day when they leave.

While Eastern Long Island, New York's swanky beach community, is the inspiration for Miles Jaffe's hilariously scathing look at the misadventures of the overloaded, it will be thoroughly enjoyed by anyone who has experienced what happens wherever the ubr-rich set up camp.

Miles Jaffe is an industrial designer turned satirist who rocked the summer denizens of the swanky "Hamptons" in 2001 with his website. The son of renowned architect Norman Jaffe, Miles is a gadfly to be reckoned with. He lives in the heart of the Hamptons. This is his first book.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Hamptons Dictionary: The Essential Guide to Class Warfare?

AMERICANNED  Aug 20, 2008
Bracing humor and apt illustrations. Check out def. 1 of "trashole": "One who disposes of their [sic] weekend garbage in a restaurant or construction site dumpster or public refuse container prior to returning to their home in the city, a behavior justified by the $42 per month cost of garbage pickup that was not included in one's $50,000 summer rental, usually performed after dark on Sunday evenings or very early on Monday mornings in an attempt to avoid discovery." If you like this, you'll probably enjoy the rest. A witty send-up of the American landed-gentry lifestyle.
