This funny, exuberant novel captures the reader with the grand sweep of seven-foot-tall David Lizard Hochmeyer's larger-than-life quest to unravel the mystery surrounding his parents deaths. It's a journey laden with pro football stars, a master chef and his beautiful transvestite lover, a world-famous ballerina and her English rocker husband, and a sister who's as brilliant as she is unstable. A wildly entertaining, plot-twisting novel of murder, seduction, and revenge--rich in incident, expansive in character, and lavish in setting"--Life Among Giants"is an exhilarating adventure.
