The Flaw, a dark family saga of arrogance, pride and power.

This is the tale of Leah Hammerman Weitzman: widow, patron of the arts, opium addict, imaginary invalid and early twentieth century Medea.

The story opens in Chicago, March 15, 1935, fifteen years after the presumed death of Albert her “beloved husband.” On this day Leah reveals in graphic detail her deceit and treachery to the horror of her children and grandchildren.

After the revelation, the story takes us back to 1900 and follows the romantic courtship, marriage and eventual destruction of her husband at the very moment he is being considered as a candidate for governor of Illinois. The story proceeds through the twenties, thirties, World War II and Leah’s death. The final chapters follow the tragic paths of Martha the eldest daughter, Albert Jr. and closes with the fate of Leah’s youngest grandchild, Annie, in 1960.
