Revenge  may be the only route to redemption for both Wesley and his enigmatic, murdered father

In this potent sequel, the family reunites after a terrible act of violence. Wesley never really knew his father, Tom, the black sheep of the Jordache family. Driven by his sorrow  and a need for justice, Wesley uncovers surprising truths about his estranged family’s complicated past. Focused, forceful, and deeply moving, Beggarman, Thief is a stunning novel by a true American literary master.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Irwin Shaw including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

About the author (2013)

Irwin Shaw (1913–1984) was an acclaimed, award-winning author who grew up in New York City and graduated from Brooklyn College in 1934. His first play, Bury the Dead (1936), has become an anti-war classic. He went on to write several more plays, more than a dozen screenplays, two works of nonfiction, dozens of short stories (for which he won two O. Henry awards), and twelve novels, including The Young Lions (1948) and Rich Man, Poor Man (1970). William Goldman, author of Temple of Gold and Marathon Man, says of Shaw: “He is one of the great storytellers and a pleasure to read.” For more about Shaw’s life and work, visit www.irwinshaw.org.
