Synopsis

Revenge  may be the only route to redemption for both Wesley and his enigmatic, murdered father
In Irwin Shaw’s celebrated novel Rich Man, Poor Man, the Jordache clan was divided and scattered by the forces of American culture and capitalism after World War II. In this potent sequel, the family reunites after a terrible act of violence. Wesley never really knew his father, Tom, the black sheep of the Jordache family. Driven by his sorrow  and a need for justice, Wesley uncovers surprising truths about his estranged family’s complicated past. Focused, forceful, and deeply moving, Beggarman, Thief is a stunning novel by a true American literary master.
