Descripción del libro CHICAGO: A NOVEL y sinopsis completa
A thriller with big shoulders and big problems set in the Chicago crowd of the 1920s, a city where some knew too much and where everyone should have known more, by the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of The Untouchables and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Glengarry Glen Ross.
Mike Hodge, veteran of the Great War, big fish of the Chicago Tribune, medium-sized, probably shouldn't have fallen in love with Annie Walsh.
But again, maybe the man who killed Annie Walsh knew not to play with Mike Hodge.
In Chicago, David Mamet has created a kaleidoscopic page turner that roars through the Windy City subway on its way to a concluding thunder.
Here is not only his first novel in more than two decades, but the book he has been building throughout his career.
Mixing some of his most brilliant fictitious creations with real figures of the time, impregnated with the "Mamet Speak" brand, richness of voice, rhythm and brio, and exploring - as no other writer can - the questions of honor, deception, revenge and devotion, Chicago is the rarest of literary creations: a book that combines the spectacular elegance of craftsmanship with a kinetic blow as fierce as the February gust of wind that blows into Lake Michigan.
