"Hailed by "The New Yorker "as "wickedly enjoyable," Nicholas Coleridge's newest novel is a sharp comedy of manners about two powerful men engaged in a bitter rivalry. Their feud rages from the boardroom to the bedroom as old money takes on the new

"Gazing from his magnificent Chawbury Manor, Miles Straker has it all. But when noveau riche Ross Clegg buys and builds on the land adjoining his country estate, ruining his perfect view, Miles is irate. Even worse, Ross is quickly taken up by the country gentry, who admire his success and his down-to-earth manners. But Miles is a dangerous enemy and he vows to take the Clegg empire apart piece by piece. A rich read full of wit, "Pride and Avarice "is sure to be Coleridge's biggest selling book to date.

About the Author

NICHOLAS COLERIDGE is managing director of Conde Nast in Britain. He has written four previous novels."


Coleridge dissects the social mores with the precision of Tom Wolfe. "The New Yorker on GODCHILDREN" [A] sweeping drama... illicit passions and activities come to startling life....Coleridge's latest family epic will hold readers spellbound. "Publishers Weekly, starred review of GODCHILDREN" Wickedly funny and flawless in the details, Coleridge's portrayal of the British upper class is irresistible from the first page to the last. "Tina Brown, author of The Diana Chronicles on GODCHILDREN" Nicholas Coleridge makes a witty and acerbic guide to this arcane, and largely secret, world. "Julian Fellowes, author of Snobs; Academy Award-wining writer of Gosford Park ON A MUCH MARRIED MAN" A keen observer of class, manners, and sexual frisson, Coleridge is a master of the social romp. "Graydon Carter, editor-in-chief, Vanity Fair on A MUCH MARRIED MAN""
