Title Profile & Character Information

Back to Blood

Annotation
About every eight to ten years since the 1987 publication of Bonfire of the Vanities, Wolfe writes a novel summing up Americas zeitgeist. This wide-lens view of Miamis Biscayne Bay sounds no different. Here we meet the Cuban mayor and black police chief, the ambitious young journalist (a Wolfe in characters clothing?), a light-skinned Creole from Haiti (whose darker brother preens like a gangster), the billionaire porn addict and the artists at the Miami Arts Basel Fair, the spectators at the regatta and the former New Yorkers at an "Active Adult" condo-not to mention some suspicious-looking Russians. What are they up to? You must read this book to find out.
