The Golden Ripple - Alec Waugh 1933 - Farrar & Rinehart, New York - First Edition A fascinating story of the widening circles of effects from a seemingly casual decision. This is ‘golden ripple’, the rumour of oil where no oil was; in a larger sense, the promise of prosperity in the half-year preceding the Fall of 1929, including a great description of New York gone haywire in the early shock of the depression. The ‘golden ripple’ affects a got-rich-quick financier in New York, a New Orleans scion of an old family and a conservative family in England.
