What makes good fortune "good"? Norman Reinhardt is certain that amassing large amounts of money is good, maybe even "better" and "best." He launches a frenzied search for a sizeable fortune that is willed to his wife by her rich uncle. In his quest Norman discovers an outrageous, then confusing, then challenging concept that all of his life is a good gift, and the gracious Giver is inviting him to a journey of scandalous generosity. Norman soon finds himself in a world of bewildering ambiguities and seeks not only for his good fortune but also for what will make his fortune "good."
