The third book in the darkly comic series following the travails of American anti-hero, Warren Schmidt, SCHMIDT STEPS BACK takes a more somber tone, covering “the most difficult things – the loss of a child, and the terrible things that have happened to our country in the last 14 years”, according to author Louis Begley. In the new novel, Schmidt will watch the Twin Towers collapse from his office in New York. “Unless one looks at the dark side, one shouldn’t be bothering to write,” said Begley. His protagonist was played by Jack Nicholson in a lauded 2002 film adaptation of the first novel in the series, ABOUT SCHMIDT.
