Inhaltsangabe

Now a major motion picture from Warner Bros. Starring Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, and Willem Dafoe

From America's most inventive novelist, Jonathan Lethem, comes this compelling and compulsive riff on the classic detective novel.

Lionel Essrog is Brooklyn's very own Human Freakshow, an orphan whose Tourettic impulses drive him to bark, count, and rip apart language in startling and original ways. Together with three veterans of the St. Vincent's Home for Boys, he works for small-time mobster Frank Minna's limo service cum detective agency. Life without Frank, the charismatic King of Brooklyn, would be unimaginable. 

When Frank is fatally stabbed, Lionel's world is suddenly turned upside down, and this outcast who has trouble even conversing attempts to untangle the threads of the case, while trying to keep the words straight in his head. 

A compulsively involving a and totally captivating homage to the classic detective tale.

Excellent book; very good voice

The story is epic; the vocabulary and writing are top-notch. I would have appreciated fewer accents and voices than the narrator chose to attempt, though some of the characters I think were done perfectly charmingly.
