Kyle Clayton struck it big over a decade ago with his debut novel; since then he's had hardly a sober moment. Now he's fallen in love with a Turkish woman, and in order to marry her, he must convert to Islam. Erin Wyatt is a waitress at Manhattan's hottest restaurant, City.She had an affair with Kyle during his drunken decade, and while he can't remember a thing about it, she certainly does. Investment tycoon Lonny Tumin, the owner of City, is wildly rich, but-it being New York-not rich enough. Before GOTHAM TRAGIC is done, Clayton will write a story about his conversion that will result in militant Muslims declaring a fatwa against him. Erin will discover that her aunt may have written a manuscript proving the existence of God. Tumin will concoct a totally fictitious Internet company and launch a wildly successful IPO. And Syeed Salaam, the doorman at City, will decide that the fatwa against Clayton must be carried out, no matter the cost. Brilliantly plotted, GOTHAM TRAGIC is a pitch-perfect send-up of money and celebrity culture. It's not a black comedy so much as a red, white, and blue one, and the next big step forward for a writer whose gifts are as impressive as the Manhattan skyline.
