In 2005, Michael Gross unlocked the doors to the most exclusive address in New York in 740 Park: The Story of the World's Richest Apartment Building. On November 1, he's giving the West Coast the same treatment with Unreal Estate: Money, Ambition, and the Lust for Land in Los Angeles. Packed full of starlets and scandal, Gross's eleventh book begs to be read poolside. And if you skedaddle down to Los Cabos, Mexico on October 21-23, that's just where you'll devour it. Las Ventanas Paraiso, a Rosewood Resort, has invited Gross to host a book club through the hotel's Hot Type Authors' Series. (Adam Gopnik and Salman Rushdie are past guests.) A week before the book's release, guests will receive an advance signed copy of Unreal Estate—and a five-course supper with its author. Rates start at $2,430, based on double occupancy. For reservations, call 310-843-9142.
