191 pp. Cumberland Press $15.00

That's a cliché, but perhaps a cleverer reviewer could mate Leo's aphorism with the legend of King Midas and wring out a few perceptive words, a pungent insight or two, on money and family. To me, that would be relying on glibness to characterize a story that hurts, too much so to be cavalier. [Read the complete review here.]
