Conflicted. Graphic artist Rich Fischer is protagonist and narrator of Matthew Klam’s novel titled, Who Is Rich?. Rich doesn’t have much money, his one graphic novel is out of print, his work doing illustrations for a magazine is mediocre and declining, and he has fallen in love outside his marriage. His lover, Amy, is the wife of a billionaire and they are both conflicted over their passions and over the place of money in their lives. While midlife struggles can become weary to read, Klam’s prose is so finely written that even impatient readers are likely to enjoy Rich’s plight.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
