In other royal rumblings, there’s a new little prince in Monaco. Charlotte Casiraghi, 27, gave birth to a son named Raphael. Dad is Casiraghi’s boyfriend, the so-called Jerry Seinfeld of France, comedian Gad Elmaleh, 42. The baby is the second great-grandson of the late Princess Grace (Kelly).

    A strong debut despite its shortcomings

    Will Chancellor’s first novel, A Brave Man Seven Storeys Tall, is not always quite as clever as the author intends, but it has plenty of energy to atone for its predictable satiric targets and some real emotional heft to counter the whiffs of pretentiousness.

    Glimpse into tony world of antiques

    The heroine of Karin Tanabe’s latest novel, young Carolyn Everett, wasn’t born grasping a Tiffany rattle, but she grew up in the guesthouse on the grounds of one of the toniest estates in Newport, Rhode Island. After graduating from Princeton, she continues her association with the super-rich by landing a job at Christie’s in New York, handling high-priced collections of American furniture. Carolyn is so passionate about her new position that she considers tattooing her forearm with a Chippendale drop-leaf dining table. To impress clients, she wears an imported perfume made from ground-up global currencies so that she will literally smell like money.
