himself Masterfully plotted darkly comic A Changed Man poses essential uestions about human nature morality and the capacity for change illuminating the everyday transactions both political and personal in our live A Changed Man begins with an ex white supremacist walking into a human rights organization s office to offer his services he wants to help guys like me from becoming guys like me The subject matter allows Prose to flex her satire muscles which by this point are uite developed In this case the focal point of her attack is a human rights organization I don t know how she s going to one up herself after this one Ten years ago in Hunters and Gatherers she targeted goddess worshipping new agey ladies Five years ago in Blue Angel she chose a riskier subject sexual harassment and pc language limitations on the college campus likely to remain a touchy subject for years to come And now she s picked a human rights organization can a cow get much sacredProse allows four main characters to narrate Vincent the ex neo nazi Meyer Maslow the wealthy leader of the World Brotherhood Watch and a holocaust survivor Bonnie the organization s Jewish fund raiser who takes Vincent into her home and Danny Bonnie s 16 year old son The juxtaposition of Meyer and Vincent is excellent The competitive yet respectful nature of their relationship is unveiled at their first meeting Both men roll up their sleeves to reveal their tattoos Meyer s serial number given to him by Nazis and Vincent s Waffen SS bolts Hitler s elite guard s symbol Meyer s written several inspirational books which influenced Vincent s departure from the white supremacist lifestyle or so he claims the most recent of which is lagging in sales Meyer knows Vincent s presence within the organization could bring much needed funds to the World Brotherhood Watch and guiltily thinks that it could also help his book sales Meyer s a charismatic leader who can get people to do whatever he wants Danny thinks his mother s been brainwashed by him he s actually convinced her to let the former neo nazi live with them until they can find him an apartment Bonnie is so obsessed with being a good person that she submits to Meyer s demands Soon we discover that Vincent has a certain charm that Meyer hates to admit he envies As Vincent sells his changed man story like a brand the press wealthy donors and even Meyer s wife eat it up Meyer s jealousy grows followed by guilt One of my favorite Vincent Meyer moments is when Meyer steals one of Vincent s ideas to use in one of his trademark inspirational speeches The two men form just one of the many interesting dyads in the bookAs we re getting into the characters we re treated to some biting satire What I like so much about this book is that the characters are so interesting and real and their stories so engaging that you forget the primary purpose of the book is satire I think it s fulfilling and less didactic than straight up satires that don t concentrate on character development or pace I do want to share two examples though The first one is when Vincent is giving a speech at a fund raising dinner When he tells the audience about how he was taught to hate the crowd gasps hate has become a four letter word Prose understands how ideology affects language My mom used to send me to my room if I used the word hate Vincent goes on to tell a simple story that s meant to symbolize his complicated conversion He and his cousin had gone to a Korean man s greenhouse intending to hurt the man Vincent remembers aloud that they referred to him as a Korean mother and decides not to use the word in such company He realizes that the audience is disappointed so he says it Korean motherfucker The crowd loves it it s so transgressive and thrilling The other example I d like to mention is when Danny gets in trouble at school for a paper he wrote on Hitler This harkens back to Blue Angel s attack on the academic gutting of free speech After talking with Vincent Danny writes a paper that suggests Hitler s suppressed homosexuality may have informed his evil He is promptly booted from school Just putting homosexuality and evil in the same sentence is grounds for hanging I love that she manages to make her points within a solid storyFrom the very beginning we know Vincent s white power friends could find him at any moment This
