Wise Men Reviews
"The plot is hackneyed and the writing is overloaded with cliche, both literal and figurative." - BookBrowse
"Starred Review. Nadler's portrait of doomed romance, along with dissections of wealth and success worthy of John Cheever, make this a very exciting debut." - Publishers Weekly
"This is a novel of character, persuasive in the telling, less so in retrospect but still impressive; Nadler is a born storyteller." - Kirkus
"Wise Men reads like a classic; it is a completely engrossing novel, one that scars the reader's heart in the most satisfying way. In confident, unpretentious prose, Nadler tackles the complexity of racial tension and fifties mores in a manner reminiscent of Harper Lee and Carson McCullers...Wise Men is, at its core, a brutal love story, full of surprise and conviction, insight and deception, staggering wealth and loss, truth and beauty." - Megan Mayhew Bergman, author of Birds of a Lesser Paradise
"Wise Men is a brilliantly plotted and carefully observed novel that takes the reader deep inside a powerful family's most guarded secrets. ...With wisdom and compassion, Nadler examines the mysteries and manners of unrequited love. Wise Men confirms that Stuart Nadler is a writer of abundant talent and grace." - Amber Dermont, author of the New York Times bestseller The Starboard Sea
"Stuart Nadler is an elegant writer and a compelling storyteller. Wise Men explores the big questions in life - love and money and race and identity - in a story packed with secrets, longings, and obsessions. It is not a book to be missed." - Vanessa Diffenbaugh, author of the New York Times bestseller The Language of Flowers
