David Brooks discussed his book BOBOs in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There, published by Simon and Schuster. The book examines what the author terms as the dominant class in today’s society, the bourgeois bohemians or BOBOs, people who combine the attitudes of the bohemian “counterculture” of the 1960s with the conservative 1980s attitudes regarding finance and family, whose culture, tastes, and attitudes have replaced the older elite. close
