The Book of Life by Stuart Nadler

Forced together on a trip from Manhattan to Rhode Island, a father and son attempt to renew their bond over lobster, cigarettes, and a buried secret. A pure-hearted artist finds his devotion cruelly tested, while his true love tries to repent for the biggest mistake of her life. Unwittingly thrust into an open marriage, a man struggles to reconnect with his newly devout son. And in the book's daring first story, an arrogant businessman begins a forbidden affair during the High Holidays.

Written in clear, crystalline prose, The Book of Life comprises seven stunning tales about faith, family, grief, love, temptation, and redemption that signal the arrival of a bold and exciting new writer.

These liars, cheats, and hypocrits arouse sympathy instead of disgust. The parents and children disappoint each other equally and yet you understand where they are coming from. The only problem is the stories are too short - you want to know more about these folks and the day of reckoning for some of their questionable decisions has yet to come!
