Full description for As Good as Gold
Bruce Gold, a middle-aged, Jewish professor of English literature, finds himself on the brink of a golden career in politics -- and not a moment too soon, as Gold yearns for an opportunity to transform a less-than-picture-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. As funny as it is sad, "Good as Gold" is a story of children grown up, parents grown old, and friends and lovers grown apart -- a story that is inimitably Heller.
