The 'Primates of Park Avenue'

Hosted by

When we think of anthropologists studying a culture, we picture distant tribes on the pages of National Geographic magazine. But Wednesday Martin has chosen to study the exotic tribe known as the wealthy housewives of the Upper East Side of Manhattan. In her new book, Primates of Park Avenue: A Memoir, she describes the tribe’s social behavior, hierarchy, child rearing techniques, rituals, costumes, and something called the wife bonus.
