The Book of Life

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


These seven stunning tales are about all the big things: faith, love, family, temptation and redemption. They show us at our most vulnerable and our most miraculous. They show moments of grief and betrayal as well as humour and happiness. They show us the best of people and the worst. They show us life.

Stuart Nadler is a writer in the great American tradition, but one who emerges from the shadows - of Updike, of Bellow, of Cheever - and stakes his own bold and exciting claim.

From Publishers Weekly

21 November 2011 – Poignant, insightful, and beautifully written, Nadler's debut story collection looks at the complications that arise in the relationships of everyday people. In the stories such as "In the Book of Life," "Catherine and Henry," and "Winter on the Sawtooth," Nadler questions how affairs change people and whether they mean the end of love. His realistic examinations of familial relationships between children, fathers, mothers, and siblings, in the stories "Visiting" and "The Moon Landing," are heartbreaking. Nadler shows his readers that though people aren't perfect, it doesn't mean they're malicious. The unexpected can change people, but they survive, leaving readers with a sense of hope. With this collection, Nadler demonstrates an fine understanding of the human psyche.
