I recently discovered a talented young author, Jesse Kellerman. His novel, The Executor, blew me away. I’ve read some works written by his parents, Fay and Jonathan Kellerman, the best-selling mystery writers, and IMHO, their extremely talented offspring surpassed them as a writer. These words may sound harsh or complimentary, depending on the parents’ priorities. I mean, their attitude toward their own work and that of their son’s. I’d like to think it’s the latter, because I personally feel thrilled when my own child surpasses me in certain things that I do well.
A quick book review will follow shortly.
