Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ironweed recreates the trials and tribulations of Albany life between world wars by following Roscoe, chief architect of Albany's notorious political machine, as his attempts to quit politics forever are thwarted by new political wars, a mysterious death, self-destructive party feuds, and shocking threats to his beloved and her family. Reprint.


Review:

"The elegiac air of William Kennedy's seventh Albany novel makes it a little more lyrical, a little more ardent, a little richer in eloquent blarney than the others."

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 01/08/2002

Review:

"These regulars are great talkers, among the best raconteurs on American fiction--and what stories: stories of love illicit and chaste, stories of cockfights..., murder stories..., battlefield heroics in the first and second world wars....[A] wonderful novel...."

Ward Just, New York Times Book Review, 01/13/2002

Book Description: Penguin Books, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. The first novel from William Kennedy in more than five years and universally acclaimed as his most powerful work since the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ironweed, Roscoe shows Kennedy at his very best. It s V-J Day, the war is over, and Roscoe Conway, after twenty-six years as the second in command of Albany s notorious political machine, decides to quit politics forever. But there s no way out, and only his Machiavellian imagination can help him cope with the erupting disasters. Every step leads back to the past-to the early loss of his true love, the takeover of city hall, the machine s fight with FDR and Al Smith to elect a governor, and the methodical assassination of gangster Jack Legs Diamond. Thick with crime, passion, and backroom banter ( The New Yorker ), Roscoe is an odyssey of great scope and linguistic verve, a deadly, comic masterpiece from one of America s most important writers.
