But his romantic and financial adventures fall short of his expectations, and present a bewildering array of predicaments. Mike is forced to examine his freewheeling behavior....Michaels parents, girlfriends, and sidekicks offer alternative lifestyles and specific advice that counter his hedonism. As Mike seeks guidance from the mores of sports and business, his mother Ruth investigates Judaism. Her ethical lessons reach Michael as well as the rest of her family....Set in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., Michaels Inheritance weaves philosophical questions into a romantic drama. With characters ranging from Orthodox rabbis to secular Jews and gentiles, this remarkable debut novel frames a balanced portrait of contemporary Jewish identity.
