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.
