"At the center of 'The Lawgiver' is Margo Solovei, a brilliant young writer-director who has rejected her rabbinical father's strict Jewish upbringing to pursue a career in the arts. When an Australian multibillionaire promises to finance a movie about Moses if the script meets certain standards, Margo does everything she can to land the job, including a reunion with her estranged first love, and influential lawyer with whom she still has unfinished business. Herman Wouk himself and his wife, Betty Sarah, find themselves estranged in the Moses movie when the Australian billionaire insists on Wouk's stamp of approval" --Cover, p. 4.

Interesting structure -interesting that at 96 he wrote this book. Light and enjoyable.

The author wrote this novel when he was 96; he doesn't show any sign of dementia in the way he writes; he seems up-to-date on modern technology. The novel is a gentle satire of the movie industry, lawyers, and venture capitalists. There are many twists and turns in the plot, which weaves together the stories of different characters. It is not a heavy read, but smooth and interesting.
