What is good news for Kate Upton, Vanilla Ice and Bette Midler might make grim reading for Goldman Sachs executives as the anonymous author behind the @GSElevator Twitter profile has agreed a deal to turn his allegedly insider observations into a tell-all book about life at the bank.
Tentatively entitled "Straight to Hell: True Tales of Deviance and Excess in the World of Investment Banking," the book is due for an October 2014 publication and, according to its anonymous author, is intended to be "the definitive exposure of investment banking culture . . . shedding new light on a world that is far more abhorrent, and yet, way more entertaining than people can imagine."

The @GSElevator Twitter profile began tweeting some three years ago, tapping into a wave of anti-bank sentiment with messages such as "My garbage disposal eats better than 98 percent of the world," and "I really do hope they have golf in Hell." @GSElevator has since attracted more than 600,000 followers on the social media network, dwarfing the number of followers of Goldman's own official profile.
