The Sacrificial Circumcision Of The Bronx
A NoveleBook - 2008
The Sacrificial Circumcision of the Bronx is the highly anticipated follow-up to The Swing Voter of Staten Island-the first two installments in Arthur Nersesian's series of novels offering an alternate history of New York: The Five Books of Moses. 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. Arthur Nersesian is the author of eight novels, including the smash hit The Fuck-Up (more than 100, 000 copies sold), dogrun, Suicide Casanova (Akashic Books), and, most recently, The Swing Voter of Staten Island, the first volume in The Five Books of Moses series. He lives in New York City.
