Abstract:
Demanding and enigmatic, patriarch Conrad Hilton's visionary ideas and unyielding will established the model for the modern luxury hotel industry. But outside the boardroom, Conrad struggled with emotional detachment, failed marriages, and conflicted Catholicism. Then there are the Hilton children: playboy Nicky, serious Barron, quiet Eric, and attention-starved Francesca. The cast of supporting players includes the inimitable Zsa Zsa Gabor, a young Donald Trump, and a host of other Hollywood and business luminaries with whom the Hiltons crossed paths and swords over the years. The Hiltons is a sweeping saga of the success—and excess—of an iconic and only-in-America family dynasty.
