Legacy. Stuart Nadler’s debut novel, Wise Men, has four ingredients that combine to make a tasty dish of fiction: love, money, race and identity. Set in the mid-20th century, love happens in unexpected places, money arrives in a large amount quickly, and things happen that lead to betrayal, a need for forgiveness, and satisfactory resolution. The key father-son relationship produces a legacy that has consequences. Nadler’s prose is finely crafted, the characters are well drawn, and the story entertaining.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
