Andrew Ridker: The Altruists

"The Altruists," tells the story of Arthur Alter, a father who has alienated his adult children but finds himself needing to reconnect with them, thanks to his foundering career and economic situation. 

Author Andrew Ridker tells the story of a father's journey to win back his children's inheritance. Ridker explores family relationships, a generational divide, the painful side of idealism and life in the Midwest through a dark and funny lens.

In this edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with Ridker about his debut novel.
