Ever find yourself thinking, "What's it like to be the ex-wife of a hedge fund manager?" Well, wonder no more. Upper East Side mom and author Jill Kargman, with the help of Frederic Fekkai Fifth, launched her newest work of fiction, The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund (self-explanatory) last night, and we're sure some hedge fund managers were at the signing. The event also brought out socialites Byrdie Bell, Allison Aston, and Vogue's Senior Market Editor, Meredith Melling Burke. Kargman's other books include Momzilla and The Right Address.
