Description
A savage, bitter, bawdy, biting, and brilliant satireAn audacious, propriety-snubbing literary event, Duluth managed to seduce The New York Times ("a knockout"), Los Angeles Times ("wonderfully nasty"), USA Today ("a black flag of a novel"), and People magazine ("raunchy, dirty, outrageous, rife with cliches -- and often very funny"). Spoofing just about everything imaginable -- social pretenses, motherhood, law enforcement, marriage, racism, literature, television, science fiction, sex -- Gore Vidal's wild burlesque tells of two women who, after perishing in a snowdrift, are reborn in Duluth, the popular television series, and in the "Hyatt Regency" romance novel Rogue Duke. Meanwhile, Lieutenant (and strip-search enthusiast) Darlene Ecks is in zealous pursuit of a drug dealer, while Duluth's mayor plumbs the mysteries of a spaceship, and a battle is waged between two Betty Grable biographers. Ingenious and bawdy, Duluth is an execution of razor-sharp satire and outlandish humor. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
