Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Irrepressibly exuberant and wildly imaginative, Edgardo Vega Yunque's third novel is a hilarious picaresque tale that stretches our perceptions of life, love, and politics in the United States. Just laid-off from Kinko's, dumped by his girlfriend, failed in all his career aspirations, and burdened with a particularly frustrating anatomical shortcoming, Omaha Bigelow finds salvation on the streets of New York's Lower East Side in the form Maruquita Salsipuedes, a Nuyorican homegirl equipped with an array of magical powers to cure his problems. Their misbegotten romance transforms him from perpetual loser to overnight success, but soon Omaha must struggle to remain faithful, as he becomes ensnared in the world of an irresistible WASP law student and her father, a sinister ex-CIA agent. With unmatched fearlessness and ferocity, Vega Yunque savages the precepts of contemporary American life and politics--from preventive war to religious dogma--and displays an incomparable vitality and mastery of the American idiom. Praise For Edgardo Vega Yunque And No Matter How Much You Promise to Cook or Pay the Rent You Blew It Cauze Bill Bailey Ain't Never Coming Home Again:
