About Schmidt

(1996)
(The first book in the Schmidt series)
A novel by

 
Proud, conservative and emotionally uptight, Albert Schmidt is a lawyer of the old school. Now, after years of careful management, his life is slowly unraveling. His beloved wife has recently died. He stumbles-?or was he pushed?into early retirement. And his daughter, his only child, is planning to marry a man Schmidt cannot approve of, for reasons he cannot admit. His feeling that there must be more to life than the accumulation of money is brought sharply into focus by a passionate, erotic encounter with a local waitress. Set in Manhattan and Long Island, About Schmidt is a dark satire on the power of wealth to suffocate human creativity and the emotions.
