Lamentable Journey of Omaha Bigelow Into the Impenetrable Loisaida Jungle: A Novel by Edgardo Vega Yunque

From one of the most powerful voices in contemporary fiction comes a fantastic adventure through the concrete jungle of New York City Failed in all his career aspirations, recently laid off from Kinkos, and burdened with a frustrating anatomical shortcoming, Omaha Bigelow finds salvation on the streets of New York Citys Lower East Side in the form of a Nuyorican homegirl equipped with an array of powers to cure his problems. Their misbegotten romance transforms him from a perpetual loser to an overnight success, but fame comes with a hefty price. Omaha must soon struggle to remain faithful as he becomes entangled with an irresistible WASP law student and a sinister ex-CIA agent who happens to be her father. Writing with a perfect-pitch ear for the American idiom, and vividly capturing the cultural landscape of post- September 11 New York, Edgardo Vega Yunque challenges the received wisdom of contemporary life and its politics with vitality, humor, and an abiding affection for pop culture, youth, and American optimism.
