Harold “Jay” Gladstone. Billionaire head of a powerful New York Jewish real estate family, owner of an NBA basketball franchise, public figure, ADL Man of the Year, by all measures a pillar of the community. Someone who considers himself a decent man because, essentially, he is one. And then two shocking events – a police shooting of a mentally ill black man at a White Plains housing project and a rage-fueled incident involving one of Gladstone’s super-star players – set into motion a chain of events that will break this man’s life wide open and challenge every comfortable notion he’s ever held about himself. The novel offers a bitingly funny, unsettling story of a proud man’s fall from grace and an indelible portrait of our times.
