Press for The Wentworths

The Wentworths“This savagely funny novel rings true as a social satire of contemporary L.A.”

“Using multiple points of view, Arnoldi tackles the story of the Wentworth clan, each and every member of which is quickly unraveling. While tales of dysfunctional families abound, this one separates itself from the pack with concise prose, escalating tension, and wry humor.”

“All you have to do is drive around L.A.’s Westside to start wondering whether behind every door is a family of dysfunctional, mean-spirited Wentworths.”

“With a wry touch, Arnoldi draws a mocking portrait of a powerful Southern California family that, while not the worst family on record, is remarkably warped by wealth and power. . . The Wentworths is a page-turner both for its well-paced intrigue and for its witty, sordid description of just how awful these people can get. The book’s coup isn’t the skewering Arnoldi gives her overprivileged clan; it’s the redemption they find after they’re served twisted justice.”
