Best-selling author Louis Begley created a beguiling icon of middle age in About Schmidt. Recently widowed, pushed into retirement by his law firm, at odds with his family, Albert Schmidt captivated readers with his cautious courage. Now he is facing ever mounting challenges of life, love, and age. Schmidt is happy living with his affectionate young girlfriend, Carrie. His grumpy daughter, on the other hand, seems to want only money from him. What really disturbs Schmidt, however, is the growing attention of his neighbor, the exotic Michael Mansour. Wealthy and persistent, Mansour seems determined to draw Schmidt into his lavish personal and financial affairs. Louis Begley's aim is perfect as he targets the joys and pitfalls facing our graying hero.

    " Not quite as good as the first Schmidtie book, but enjoyable nonetheless...I can follow the foibles of Schmidtie for some time to come, he is never boring (even though he thinks he is!) "

    " The second in the Schmidt series. Another well-crafted Begley effort, with a simpler plot line than his first one, and shorter in length. Schmidt does grow on one, after one gets used to him! "

    " Loved it. Wasn't too sure when I first started it, but I loved the setting although I had never been to the Hamptons and the characters were a whacky bunch. The satire made the book worth reading for me. It reminded me of the Rabbit books by Updike. "
