9780316036313: Back to Blood

As the police boat speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay, the scene is set for Officer Nestor Camacho's great moment of heroism. Except that in this feverous melting pot of a city, Nestor's one act of heroism can be seen as an utter betrayal of his Cuban roots. As Nestor's world disintegrates - his family disowns him, he can't get a Cuban coffee without ugly stares, and his girlfriend Magdalena leaves him for her sex-addiction psychiatrist boss - his quest to right the wrongs brings him into contact with the full panorama of modern Miami. The Cuban mayor, a Yale-marinated journalist, the black police chief, a Haitian professor whose ambitions to be French are thwarted by his Creole-spouting son, the clueless baying art-buyers and an Anglo billionaire porn addict all come up for scrutiny in Tom Wolfe's high-energy, scrupulous and hilarious reckoning with our times.

Review:

"Back to Blood dazzles so much that you might want to read it through dark glasses" (Simon O’Hagan Independent on Sunday)

"Tom Wolfe returns with a thunderous thwack, fizzing outrageously with a slipstreamed comet of a novel... It’s even better than his great hit The Bonfire of the Vanities. Unmissable stuff" (Tom Adair Scotsman)

"Exhilarating... The satire is scalpel-like and very funny." (Wynn Wheldon Spectator)

"Energising, fascinating – and utterly exhausting." (Tim Walker Independent)

"If this novel were rushed into A&E, it would immediately be put under heavy sedation." (Peter Kemp Sunday Times)

Book Description:

Tom Wolfe is back, with his most brilliant novel since The Bonfire of the Vanities, jettisoning us into the turbulent heart of America’s racial vortex: Miami.
