Rich Man, Poor Man by Irwin Shaw - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Rich Man, Poor Man:

A tale of two brothers.

My favorite Irwin Shaw quote from the book:

"Look to women for wisdom."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

How dysfunctional was your family?

Are you a Rudolph or a Thomas?

My review of Rich Man, Poor Man:

Ah! The fun of family drama.

Compellingly real.

I felt like such a big kid the first time I read this.
