Overview

The author of Memory Links, Stool Wives, When Arm & Hammer Met the Pillsbury Doughboy, and The Discovery of Chocolate turns his talent toward a macaronic comic novel - in verse, more worse. Instead of Don Quixote tilting windmills we have a vengeful Mafia don tilting bicycle spokes, instead of a bumbling sidekick named Sancho we have one named Pedro, who discovers that he is at least politically correct, if nothing else. All this, plus a bonus spirit guide named Ramon to lead us through a cast of stolid American colonels, impossible movie stars and a pharonic mummy - with a twist, after the untwisting. And this character Sid, just when will the Don ever find him to complete his quest for vengeance?
