23—The Name of the Game by Will Eisner

Will Eisner, one of comics' most influential and groundbreaking storytellers, returns with this all-new hardcover, a tumultuous generational saga of a wealthy Jewish family's assimilation into New York society. From the turn of the century to post World War II, this emotionally rich tale paints a compelling picture of life, family, religion and social status. It's also the story of the American Dream and the game of marrying for social advantage. Conrad and Alex Arnheim are two rich sons who inherit the family's successful garment business. Over the years, they each in turn destroy the family legacy and drastically affect the lives of many people connected to them.
