Synopsis: The time is the 1980s. The place is St. Louis, Missouri, once the country's fourth largest city, now the twenty-seventh: a fading river town whose only current claim to national attention is that it has chosen a young woman from Bombay, India to be its new police chief. No sooner has S. Jammu been installed, however, than the city becomes embroiled in a bizzare and all-pervasive political conspiracy.

About the Author:

Jonathan Franzen is the author of four novels, including Freedom, the National Book Award-winning The Corrections, and Strong Motion; a personal history, The Discomfort Zone; two collections of essays, Farther Away and How to Be Alone; and translations of Frank Wedekind's Spring Awakening and Karl Kraus's essays titled The Kraus Project. He lives in New York City and Santa Cruz, California.
