Inhaltsangabe: From the Pulitzer-Prize winning author of IRONWEED and LEGS, ROSCOE is a comic journey into the dark heart of America's postwar democratic dream. It's V-J Day, World War II is finally over, and Roscoe is quitting politics after twenty-six years as chief brainstruster of Albany's notorious Democratic machine. The suave, brilliant, unscrupulous Falstaffian wants to hang up his white double-breasted Palm Beach suit and drift into retirement. But how will he relax his hold on the lid without the political pot boiling over, scalding his beloved and her family? Armed with the politician's most powerful credo - 'Righteousness doesn't stand a chance against the imagination' - Roscoe fights his final political battles. Every step forward leads Roscoe into the past - to the early loss of his true love, to his own particular heroics in World War I, the takeover of City Hall and the methodical assassination of the gangster Jack 'Legs' Diamond. ROSCOE is a comic masterpiece from one of America's most revered novelists.

Rezension: 'A beaut, deadly serious high comedy ... wonderful' -- New York Times Book Review

'A triumph...ROSCOE is so thick in background detail you feel Kennedy could write the Albany phone book and make it utterly entertaining. An immediate classic' -- Time Out

'His language is vigorous, full of energy. At a time when so much cold porridge is served up in the literary world as hot stuff, here is the real hot stuff' -- Saul Bellow

'Kennedy's writing is effulgent and desperately comic, dizzying in its depths of sorrow and access to loquacity. [An] irreplaceable American author' -- Jonathan Franzen

'Roscoe is a fascinating mass of paradoxes and conflicting short, he is a brilliant construction' -- Sunday Express
