A campy, hilarious, fast-paced indulgence that's addictively entertaining.
Like many other performers, Gil is dying to become famous on the New York operatic stage; unfortunately, he might get his wish when he lands a lead role in a dream production that also happens to be targeted for total destruction by a vengeful, female gangster.
Suddenly, happy-go-lucky Gil finds himself stranded in the middle of Mobster Boulevard, aflutter in heels, dresses, and wigs, with only his wits for protection and a new romance for inspiration.
Audacious and brilliantly adventurous, this book reads like a madcap opera, illuminating a beautifully controlled zany cast of characters. Egan reminds us of how essential such fun and joyful storytelling can be, leaving us smiling and wanting more.
...a campy, rapid-fire juggling act that gets quirkier and funnier as the pages turn. Well written prose. Snappy dialogue. Delightful characters. Fiendishly inventive. And ultimately profound. Laury A. Egan has written an utterly enchanting book...
[When] Laury Egan turns her hand to any genre of fiction, she makes it sing. This farcical romp is a colorful, spritely swirl of multiple identities, mobsters, mismatched paramours, and musical shenanigans of operatic proportions. Such delicious fun!
