Up, Down and Sideways

'“A droll, assured, entertaining send-up of Wall Street which follows the fortunes of 24-year-old whiz kid Philip Halsey, who having dropped out of college at the age of 20, has parlayed a relatively small stake into a major portfolio.” —Kirkus Reviews   “The novel is reminiscent of Bonfire of the Vanities, though more introspective and with a greater care for characters than sociology. Patton pulls it all together, marshaling his considerable talent into a fluid, ironic comedy of morals.” —Publishers Weekly   “Rich with comic episodes and wry phrasing, this picaresque tale provides insights into the recurring problems of fathers and sons, husbands and wives, and lovers of all descriptions.” —Library Journal'
