This is an auction for WISE MEN by Stuart Nadler.

"Wise Men begins with an irresistible description of the narrator's father--an arrogant, preening, but still somehow lovable ambulance-chasing lawyer who becomes superrich and famous by prosecuting the airlines--and goes on to create a perfect picture of mid-20th-century America: a country naïve, ambitious, and possessed of a racism and anti-Semitism both genteel and pervasive. With stunning understanding--especially for an author born well after the time his book describes--Nadler has written a story about fathers and sons, about love and longing and loss; a book that is funny and sad and local and global. Think Harper Lee crossed with Philip Roth: This is a truly Great American Novel."
- Amazon Best Books of the Month, February 2013

"Surprising...The story stretches over both Wise men's lifetimes and fills them with resonant complications...expertly wrought."
- New York Times

"A historical novel with the gusto of Gatsby."
- People

"Much of this complex and honest novel is about the possibility of redemption for our past actions. But the emotionally searing sections revolve around Hilly's ambitious, tyrannical father, who is endowed with a mixture of such uplifting and upsetting qualities that you're constantly sifting through secrets and motivations, trying to understand him-and getting sucked into the story in the process."
- Oprah.com

"Simple, powerful and a conclusion that is not only surprising but deeply satisfying."
- Dallas Morning News

"Genuinely moving."
- Boston Globe

"Nadler is a gifted storyteller."
- Entertainment Weekly
