How the leisure class has been replaced by a new elite, and how their consumer habits affect us all In today’s world, the leisure class has been replaced by a new elite. Highly educated and defined by cultural capital rather than income bracket, these individuals earnestly buy organic, carry NPR tote bags, and breast-feed their babies. They care about discreet, inconspicuous consumption—like eating free-range chicken and heirloom tomatoes, wearing organic cotton shirts and TOMS shoes, and listening to the Serial podcast. They use their purchasing power to hire nannies and housekeepers, to cultivate their children’s growth, and to practice yoga and Pilates. In The Sum of Small Things, Elizabeth Currid-Halkett dubs this segment of society “the aspirational class” and discusses how, through deft decisions about education, health, parenting, and retirement, the aspirational class reproduces wealth and upward mobility, deepening the ever-wider class divide. Exploring the rise of the aspirational class, Currid-Halkett considers how much has changed since the 1899 publication of Thorstein Veblen’s Theory of the Leisure Class. In that inflammatory classic, which coined the phrase “conspicuous consumption,” Veblen described upper-class frivolities: men who used walking sticks for show, and women who bought silver flatware despite the effectiveness of cheaper aluminum utensils. Now, Currid-Halkett argues, the power of material goods as symbols of social position has diminished due to their accessibility. As a result, the aspirational class has altered its consumer habits away from overt materialism to more subtle expenditures that reveal status and knowledge. And these transformations influence how we all make choices. With a rich narrative and extensive interviews and research, The Sum of Small Things illustrates how cultural capital leads to lifestyle shifts and what this forecasts, not just for the aspirational class but for everyone.

THE DUCK POINT YACHT CLUB, located on a peninsula on the New England coast, has welcomed invitees for over one hundred fifty years. When the charred relic of the club’s dory appears on the river and a naked wooden leg peeps out from under the stern thwart, two men suffering from professional loneliness are suddenly thrust into the midst of a murder mystery. Paul Leach is a retired orthopedic surgeon who, with the help of a down-and-out police detective, becomes a self-appointed murder investigator. Eva Gitane, a seductive young beauty, has mysteriously vanished; when her body part turns up abruptly, Leach becomes frustrated by a confusing trail of gruesome clues. Unable to pinpoint any one of three males who once rivaled for Eva’s attention as her killer, Leach focuses on locating her body, wherever it might lie—underground or underwater. As body pieces continue to emerge along the seashore, the doctor studies them in secret, applying knowledge gathered in his medical career and bone-collecting hobby. But as Leach arrives at a startling discovery only he could have fathomed, he realizes that Eva may have been not only enchanting, but also smart enough to catch her own killer.
