Abstract:

Born into poverty on the Black Sea, David Golder has clawed his way to fabulous wealth by speculating on gold and oil. As he works in his magnificent Parisian apartment, his wife and beloved daughter, Joyce, spend his money at their villa in Biarritz. But Golder's security is fragile. For years he has defended his business interests from cut-throat competitors. Now his health is beginning to show the strain. As his body betrays him, so too do his wife and child, leaving him to decide which to pursue: revenge or altruism?A page-turningly chilling and brilliant portrait of the frenzied capitalism of the 1920s and a universal parable about the mirage of wealth.
