Who Is Rich?: A Novel

Who Is Rich?: A Novel - Matthew Klam Who is Rich? An insufferable dolt, mostly. Lazy, judgmental, selfish beyond words. Three hundred pages of bitching and moaning because he, a forty-something man, is only just learning that sometimes life is dull and sometimes people aren't perfect. It might be easier to sympathize with him as a frustrated artist if he displayed any ambition whatsoever to be an artist, but even that prospect seems to be too much work and not enough fun for him. Mostly I spent the entire book rolling my eyes and wishing something would happen to make him grow up already. Disappointing.
