The Sperling sisters seem like PG rated versions of the Sternwood sisters from the Phillip Marlowe novel The Big Sleep. I wonder if this was an homage or just a coincidence.
Also if this novel were written today, I think that Paul Emerson would be Tucker Carlson or Rush Limbaugh. Some things never change..

Interesting comparison on the Sperling sisters I hadn’t previously considered! And I think you are definitely correct about Emerson.
