A novel of romantic intrigue that foresees today's dot.com era with such characters as Uncle Caesar, with a prurient interest in the truth, in doing things right; Virginia, an Apache librarian and tutor for Jefferson Davis MacClandish; Jeff, a would-be pilot grounded in his father's business who, in turn, traps armadillos for Macy's; Mapinguari, the 6-foot tall, 500-pound Amazonian sloth with a quick paw who loves to play jacks; Miss Edith, the MacClandish matriarch, who smuggles diamonds in her unfaithful husband's colostomy bag to finance her scheme to control the Internet with a "feminine touch." Writes Bill Appel, veteran book doctor, novelist and reviewer for Publisher's Weekly: "Marvelously extraordinary, eccentric and bizarre characters and situations. I haven't read such splendid surrealism since James Purdy's Malcolm" (Farr Straus & Giroux). Wrote Lewis H. Lapham, editor of Harper's magazine, to the author's literary agent in 1967: "I love the way Kelton writes." Newspaper editor Frank Patrick: "I love the part about Eleanor Roosevelt conspiring with Miss Edith to reform the world!" Peter Kelton writes fiction when he's between news jobs and has written professionally for some of the world's largest corpo-rations and news organizations. Most of his work has been in New York. He grew up in Texas, served overseas in the US Army and returned to Europe as a foreign correspondent. He currently divides his time between his home in Albuquerque and Mexico City. He's working on a novel set in Mexico entitled A Light in Polanco while rewriting some of his earlier eight novels.
