Bruce Gold, a Jewish professor, is on the brink of a golden career in politics, an opportunity for him to transform a less than perfect life. His children think little of him; his intimidating father endlessly bullies him; and his wife is so oblivious that she doesn't even notice he's left her. Heller's story of children grown up, parents grown old, and friends and lovers grown apart
This outstanding book is bound in genuine leather with raised bands and features gilded sewn-in pages and ribbon marker, with a satin marker. Simply superb quality; Franklin Library at its best.
