Norm Spitzig: Private Clubs in America and around the World: The Reprise Edition

POSTED ON April 12, 2024 @ 4:12 pm

Private Clubs in America and Around the World – The Reprise Edition is a very funny and perceptive glimpse into the wonderfully zany world of private clubs. Private clubs are inextricably woven into the histories, traditions and cultures of ALL free societies, so EVERYONE with a keen sense of humor, whether familiar or not with private clubs, will thoroughly enjoy the author’s penetrating insights, blatant irreverence and sarcastic wit. Be prepared to laugh your socks off at this must-read!

“Private Clubs in America and around the World is a gleeful parody of the stereotypical private club, with its selective membership, distaste for the hoi polloi, and zany cast of über-rich oddballs with some of the silliest names you’re likely to encounter outside of a P. G. Wodehouse novel.”

– Lavanya Karthik

“Norm Spitzig accurately captures the fanciful foibles—and, at times, the wonderful lunacy—in the private club environment. His many characters, who seem to be right out of central casting, can be found frolicking in utter abandon throughout the book.”

– Peter Kite

“Norm Spitzig’s Private Clubs in America and around the World has given me a lot of chuckles and some humongous belly laughs. The year I was president of our country club I purchased copies for everyone on the board of directors.”

– Norm Matthew
