Summary
"Paul Goldberg, the acclaimed author of The Yid, takes us behind the scenes of a Gold Coast condo board election, delivering a wild spin on Florida, Jewish identity, petty crime, fascism, vodka, and life in Trump's America. It is January 2017 and Bill has hit rock bottom. Yesterday, he was William M. Katzenelenbogen, successful science reporter at The Washington Post, with years of experience and industry awards. But things have taken a turn. Fired from his job, aimless, with exactly $1,219.37 in his checking account, he learns that his college roommate, a plastic surgeon known far and wide as the "Butt God of Miami Beach," has fallen to his death under salacious circumstances. With nothing to lose, Bill boards a flight for Florida's Gold Coast, ready to begin his own investigation--a last-ditch attempt to revive his career. There's just one catch: Bill's father, Melsor. Melsor Yakovlevich Katzenelenbogen--poet, literary scholar, political dissident, small-time crook--is angling for control of the condo board at the Château Sedan Neuve, a crumbling high-rise in Hollywood, Florida. The current board is filled with fraudsters in cahoots with contractors and levying "special assessments" on residents, and Melsor will use any means necessary to win the board election. Who better to help him--through means both legal and illegal--than his estranged son? As he did in The Yid, Paul Goldberg has taken something we think we know and turned it on its ear. Featuring a colorful cast of characters, The Château guarantees that you will never look at crime, condo boards, kleptocracy, vodka, fascism or Florida the same way again."--Dust jacket
