Description

Vincent Nolan, a young neo-Nazi, walks into the Manhattan office of World Brotherhood Watch, a human rights foundation headed by a charismatic Holocaust survivor, Meyer Maslow. Vincent announces that he wants to make a radical change in his life. But what is Maslow to make of this rough-looking stranger who says that his mission is to save guys like him from becoming guys like him?

As he gradually changes, Vincent also transforms those around him; including Maslow; Bonnie Kalen, a devoted believer in Maslow's crusade against intolerance and injustice; and her teenage son, Danny.

Masterfully plotted, darkly comic, A Changed Man illuminates the everyday transactions in our lives, exposing what remains invisible in plain sight. Remarkable for the author's tender sympathy for her characters, A Changed Man poses the essential questions: What constitutes a life worth living? Is it possible to change? The fearless intelligence, wit, and humanity that inform this novel make it Francine Prose 's most accomplished yet.
