Editorial Reviews:
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: Book Condition: New. Ships From Canada. New in new dust jacket. Glued binding. Paper over boards. With dust jacket. 304 p. Audience: General/trade. Book Description You've never met a politician like Roscoe (or have you? ): a suave Falstaffian in a double-breasted white Palm Beach suit, unscrupulous, brilliant, exploding with courtly romance. It's V-J Day, the war's over, and Roscoe, after twenty-six years as chief braintruster of Albany's notorious political machine, decides to quit politics forever. But there's no exit, only new political wars, mysterious death, self-destructive party feuds, and scandalous threats to his beloved and her family. Roscoe, the chivalrous warrior, turns his own life, and everybody else's, inside out to cope with the erupting disasters and finds fraudulence an extremely effective combat weapon. "'"Righteousness doesn't stand a chance against the imagination, "'" he concludes. Every step forward leads Roscoe back to the past-to the early loss of his true love, his own peculiar.

Roscoe, the chivalrous warrior, turns his own life, and everybody else's, inside out to cope with the erupting disasters and finds fraudulence an extremely effective combat weapon. "Righteousness doesn't stand a chance against the imagination, " he concludes. Every step forward leads Roscoe back to the past-to the early loss of his true love, his own peculiar heroics in the First World War, the takeover of city hall, the fight with FDR and Al Smith to elect a governor, and the methodical assassination of gangster Jack (Legs) Diamond. Roscoe, William Kennedy's seventh novel in his Albany cycle, illuminates the high and low of Albany life between the world wars. It is an odyssey of great scope and linguistic verve, a deadly comic masterpiece from one of America's most important novelists. "Kennedy's beguiling yarns are the kind of family myths embellished and retold across a kitchen table at night: whiskified, raunchy, darkly funny, tangles of old resentments and fresh exasperations. " (Time ) "When Kennedy writes about Albany, New York, he is in fact holding up a mirror to all of American history.his fictional terrain can be compared to the Faulknerian South in its complex richness. " (The Washington Post) "Kennedy's power is such that the reader will follow him almost anywhere, to the edge of tragedy and back again to redemption. " (The Wall Street Journal) About the Author William Kennedy was born and raised in Albany, New York, and still lives on its outskirts. His. Bookseller Inventory # 0002874
