Loving Succession? Read This!

By Kat La Mantia | May 5 2023 | AllPop CultureBlogAdultsGeneral

It’s impossible to look away from Succession‘s final season. The dramedy about a power struggle between a manipulative, media mogul father and his dysfunctional, ambitious, always scheming children is better than ever. From Kendall’s mastery of empty corporate jargon to Greg naïvely stumbling to the top amidst his cousins’ high-dollar backstabbing, Succession is a masterfully plotted tale about family politics, big media, and the absurd lives of billionaires.

Though this season is the show’s last, we have books to keep you in the Succession mood long after the last episode airs. Read the dirty details behind infamous corporate families, battles for big media empires, and compelling fiction about money-hungry, status-seeking hopefuls.
