Summary "Arthur Alter is in trouble. He can?t afford his mortgage, he's exasperated his girlfriend, and his kids won't speak to him. There's also the fortune his late wife, Francine, kept secret and bequeathed directly to his children: Ethan, an anxious recluse living off his mother's money, and Maggie, who is trying to live a noble life of self-imposed poverty. About to lose the family home, Arthur invites his children to visit under the guise of a reconciliation. But in doing so, he unwittingly unleashes age-old resentments and long-buried memories. The Altruists is a darkly funny family saga that confronts the divide between baby boomers and their millennial offspring."--Back cover.
