  • The Selfish Giant

    JEFFREY SHOULD BE THANKFUL. He is a successful attorney with a loving and devoted wife and an amazing daughter. He is also a workaholic who eats poorly, drinks, is morbidly obese, and smokes. And his personality can best be described as mean, ruthless, and selfish. But all of that changes when Jeffrey encounters the Angel of Death. In exchange for his life, he is challenged to repent for the seven deadly sins. Meanwhile, his neglected wife struggles with a secret of her own, and his daughter feels her perfect life slipping away. From the dramatic opening to its climactic conclusion, The Selfish Giant will leave an indelible mark in the hearts and minds of all. Not just another story about a second chance at life, The Selfish Giant will shock and amaze-and then make you smile. Amen.

From as far back as he can remember, Benjamin Berkley has been fascinated by the law. Growing up in Long Beach, New York, his daily schedule revolved around grainy black-and-white reruns of Perry Mason who, with the help of Della Street, solved the most complicated crimes imaginable. It was therefore no surprise to his family and friends that Berkley chose law as his career path, now practicing for over forty years. In Defense of Guilt is Benjamin Berkley's second novel. He is also the author of four self-help books and is a contributing writer for the Huffington Post. Berkley lives in Southern California with his wife, Phyllis, and their cat, Riley. He has two grown children and is always bragging about his five amazing grandchildren.
