Before Francine Alter passed away, she quietly rewrote her will to bypass her philandering husband, Arthur, and leave her life savings to their two children. But when Arthur can no longer afford his lifestyle, he invites his estranged kids home for a weekend to win their affection—and their financial support. A humorous and touching novel, The Altruists
is an introspective tale about disastrously flawed characters trying to salvage their family...and themselves. (SM)
