A Novel of Politics

Paperback - 2009
Rate this:
In a novel as brawling and boisterous as Chicago itself, Scott Simon delivers a tale both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply moving, capturing the multiethnic tumult of big city politics.

The mayor of Chicago is found in his office late at night, murdered, facedown in a pizza. As police race to find the killer, the interim mayor, Sundaran "Sunny" Roopini, tries to juggle his responsibilities as a recently widowed father of two teenage daughters while herding his forty-nine fellow city aldermen toward choosing a new mayor. Over the course of four days, this raft of colorful characters-heroes, rascals, and pinky-ringed pols of all creeds, colors, and proclivities-will clash, as Sunny, a flawed but decent man, tries to hold together his family and his city.
