The Boyars: the Prodigals tells the story of three generations of a Romanian family who have all abandoned their peasant roots to pursue a life of luxury and wealth. The first generation, the Boyars, are successful businessmen and politicians, but their reckless spending causes them to lose everything. The second generation, the Prodigals, are still successful, but they have lost the respect and love of their families and friends. The third generation, the Castoffs, are struggling to make ends meet and are bitter and resentful of their ancestors.; 8vo; 446 pages.
