In 1943 a high-society murder case drew international attention for its irresistible combination of violent crime, scandalous sex, and enormous wealth. Gordon Merrick and Charles G. Hulse put their own fictional stamp on the story, and The Good Life emerges as a fascinating history of gay life in New York in the '30s and '40s: theaters, restaurants, clubs, parties - the whole panorama of the glittering city in one of its liveliest periods.
Perry Langham, a dirt-poor Depression-era boy, meets and marries Bettina, the teenage daughter of his rich lover. Their life is a prolonged party - traveling to Europe, cruising the Mediterranean in yachts, meeting all the famous people of the day - until Perry's wife discovers the real relationship between her husband and her father. In a rage Bettina threatens to denounce them both, but murder intervenes, and the life of the Langham family is forever changed.
