A Changed Man by Francine Prose
After reading an excerpt in The Atlantic from a soon to be release book of essays titled Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and Those Who Want to Write Them, I started on a Prose kick to finish out my summer reading. A Changed Man is the story of a young, tattoed neo-Nazi named Vincent Nolan who walks into the office of a brotherhood organization run by a Holocaust survivor and volunteers to have his life changed through their organization. He becomes an unlikely poster child for tolerance and hope, but not without some humorous twists.
