A novel by

 
 
A tale of political downfall from "an exceptional creative talent perfectly in tune with his own rapidly changing times" (Robert Coover, bestselling author of The Public Burning).

In 2002, real-life mayor of Providence, Rhode Island, Vincent "Buddy" Cianci was convicted of extortion. This is the story of Don "Pally" Dimaio, mayor of La Plata, as his corrupt administration spirals out of control.

From the award-winning author of Curse the Names and Fast Eddie, King of the Bees, this is a wildly inventive satirical novel that toggles between adaptations of the language of Cervantes and a narrative of an American mayor's quixotic decline.
