Roscoe: A Novel
William Kennedy (au). Here is a comic masterpiece from one of America’s most important novelists. You’ve never met a politician like Roscoe Conway: 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, & Roscoe, after 26 years as chief brain truster of Albany’s notorious political machine, decides to quit politics forever. But there’s no exit, only new political wars & scandalous threats to his family. Every step forward leads Roscoe back to the past -- to the early loss of his true love, his heroics in the WWI, the takeover of city hall, the machine’s fight with FDR & Al Smith to elect a governor, & the methodical assassination of gangster Jack “Legs” Diamond.
