Publisher's Summary

Rafael Yglesias, critically acclaimed, best-selling novelist and screenwriter, has crafted a novel that tells the stories of three childhood friends who join together as adults to acknowledge the ways in which their lives were altered by the actions of a predator who sexually abused them and who now, many years later, has been exposed by more recent victims but, thanks to his wealth and influence, is on the verge of escaping punishment.

The Wisdom of Perversity unmasks the headlines, giving voice to what is unsaid and life to what is hidden. Yglesias has created a startling, engrossing, unsettling, and moving story of surviving an insidious evil and a triumphant struggle to heal its wounds.

Critic Reviews

"The sly courage, the deft intelligence and the fierceness of vision that we, his fans, have come to expect from a Rafael Yglesias novel all blaze brightly forth - and cast very dark shadows - in The Wisdom of Perversity." (Michael Chabon, author of Telegraph Avenue)
