The Global View makes me wonder what dark secrets I would discover if I wrote a biography about my own father. Or would the sinister past come out about my own mother? While Bernie is digging into his father’s past, he is finding out more about his mother. He was close to his mother, where as his father was more of a stranger.
What does it feel like to have a dad, a role model, who is an overachiever? In The Global View, W.L. Liberman creates characters that help readers see one of the biggest sources of stress in the lives of people whose parents set very high standards and achieve them. Bernard Goldman has grown up seeing his father thrive in his writing career, producing a bestseller, The Global View, and winning the respect of many. But there is more about his father that unnerves him: he is sought after by influential men in politics and the intelligentsia. Imagine a man who is close to the likes of Berenson, Einstein, and Bertrand Russell! Such is Ephraim Goldman. When a reputable publisher, Julian De Groot, hires Bernard to write his father’s biography, it comes as a huge challenge but with the potential of being the breakthrough he’s always wanted. But is Bernard ready for the secrets he’ll find in his father’s and his family’s closets when he starts this assignment, and will he be able to look at his father with the same respect he has always had for him?
W.L. Liberman has a great gift for narrative and I liked the way he builds the tension in the story. He takes off with a compelling description of one of the key characters, and immediately arouses the reader’s curiosity about this intriguing and enigmatic personality. The story is told by Bernard Goldman in a powerful voice and readers will appreciate the way the author portrays the relationship between father and son. The Global View is well paced and with the kind of narrative that promises an unpredictable plot. I loved the beauty of the prose, the surprising plot turns, and character development.
