Details

Robert Moses was responsible for creating contemporary New York's infrastructure, but he did so at the cost of destroying neighborhoods. In this novel, Robert has looted his brother Paul's share of the Moses family fortune, repeatedly blocked his attempts at gaining public office, thwarted his career in the private sector, and set in motion events that decimate Paul's home life. Paul Moses' deep-seated rage metamorphoses into an act of terrorism committed against his brother and against a city that he once cherished. Although it can be read as a stand-alone novel about Robert and Paul Moses, The Sacrificial Circumcision of the Bronx is also a memory play that follows Uli Sarkisian - the hero of The Swing Voter of Staten Island - en route to solving a massive historical crime, while desperately struggling to escape from becoming another one of its victims.
