coterie – n. a close, exclusive group of people with shared interests

Classical Usage:  Have you been keeping up with your character list?  If so, you probably have Countess Lydia Ivanovna on there with the following description from Part One Chapter 31, The Countess Lydia Ivanovna was a friend of her (Anna’s) husband’s and the centre of that coterie of Petersburg society with whcih Anna, through her husband, was most closely connected.

Classically Mad Usage:  We’re close, we have shared interests, but we try not to be too exclusive.  We don’t want to be known as A Classic Case of Coterie.
