THE ROYAL FAMILY.
Edition: 1st trade paperback printing.
New York: Penguin, (2001.). Massive novel by one of our best and most innovative modern writers - described by one reviewer as a book with 'wild ambition' - "Henry Tyler is a failing private detective in San Francisco. When the love of his life, a Korean-American woman named Irene - who happens to be married to his brother John - commits suicide, he clings despairingly to her ghost. Struggling to turn grief and guilt into something precious, he employs his professional skills to track down the supernatural Queen of the Prostitutes, who first gives him a false Irene (in reality a heroin-poisoned whore), and then herself." 780 pp. ISBN: 0-670891673.
