From internationally best-selling author Tommy Wieringa, comes a rich and engrossing novel about a man on an odyssey in search of answers about his dysfunctional artistic family and the legacy they left behind.

When Ludwig Unger returned to his hometown after a decade, he arrived with a plastic bag filled with his mother's ashes and little else. He was there to make amends with his lonely past, to say goodbye to the familial ghosts that still haunted him.
Raised in a cliff-top cottage on the coast of England, Ludwig's mother tried to create a normal life for her son after her husband one day left them to pursue his art.
A mama's boy, Ludwig grew up in her shadow, developing an obsession with her and her sensual allure.
 But when he discovered the secret of her past as the world-famous porn star Eve LaSage" and her plans for a comeback, Ludwig's world spun out of control. He soon found himself homeless, shouldering the shame of his mother's career, and embarking on a journey that took him around the world.

Little Caesar is a story of beauty and decay, of filial loyalty and parental betrayal, and of the importance of self-sacrifice.
