Synopsis: Acclaimed author of Easy Travel to Other Planets creates a thrilling work of intellectual and erotic provocation, rendered with stylishness and suspense.
At a political fundraiser in New York, Andrew and Edith inaugurate their love affair with a brazen sexual spectacle. Watching them is the event’s speaker, Santiago Diaz, a Mexican popular hero who is now running for his country’s presidency. He is aroused, disturbed, and intent on finding the couple whose erotic risk-taking parallels his own high-wire career.
Soon Andrew and Edith are drawn into Diaz’s campaign, his marriage, and the vortex of trans-American politics where plunder dictates policy, loyalty is devalued currency, and the future of nations is decided by talk-show appearances and terror.
Praise for Ted Mooney
“[A] combustible literary cross between Hawkesian avant-garde and Don DeLillo’s post-modern cool.”—The New York Times
“Unsettling, coolly intense. . . . Mooney is a risk-taking adventurer in novelistic possibilities.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Equally enchanting and disorienting.”—Boston Book Review
Review: True love and international affairs make strange bedfellows indeed. Ted Mooney's novel Singing into the Piano begins with two lovers, Edith and Andrew, engaging in some very heavy petting under the table while attending a political banquet in New York. The speaker is Santiago Diaz, a former soccer star and candidate for president of Mexico, and since Edith and Andrew's table is located directly in front of him, he can't help but notice what is going on. Later, when he finds the purse Edith left behind and returns it to her, Diaz draws the American couple into his own world of Mexican politics, economics, and danger. Invited to visit Diaz and his wife at their home in Mexico, Andrew and Edith find themselves first seduced by the glamour of a political campaign and then increasingly endangered by a skein of conspiracy, violence, and death. Not only has Mooney come up with an intriguing and fast-moving story, he has also penned a provocative meditation on the state of an increasingly interrelated world at the end of the 20th century.
