“Anderson has captured the texture, the nuances, and the genuine humanity of the racial issues facing our country in this very moment. This reminds me of “Man in Full” by Tom Wolfe, not because it takes place in Atlanta, but because it has a wonderfully woven plot and a colorful, engaging development of the characters. They come to life as credible and identifiable with current concerns, touched by many years of our country’s challenges as we come to grips with our mistakes and the repercussions. We are all flawed, each in our own way, and Anderson reflects that in his writing. It’s hard to put down until the very end...with a deep sigh and a wish that these issues could be resolved.”

With authority and mastery of prose, Anderson cleverly and skillfully guides the reader through the individual hurdles and personal obstacles that appear at Jack’s every turn. Each character is convincing and satisfying. He deftly encourages the reader to reach a conclusion, an understanding, of their own. His writing is well-paced, nuanced, yet complicated enough that readers will long to turn the page.

I do think it is a very enjoyable piece of work with a surprising, but realistic conclusion. I think you have presented a worthwhile book. A thinking person's book.

A Novel

America is split today over a number of hotly contested social and cultural issues. Most prominent of those is race. The issue itself and how we deal with its anguish and anger, forms the basis for this novel.

A divided America creates an explosive racial situation that threatens the reputations of the family and friends of one of Atlanta’s best known men, Jack Collier; a man recognized as a brilliant architect. A racial reckoning is demanded over a 1940 hanging of a Black man, which took place on property owned by Jack.

A biased media accuses Jack of being a racist for his refusal to save and memorialize this ancient ‘hanging’ tree. The Price of Perfect is a literary novel that challenges the reader themselves to look for solutions to bringing the races together.
