Victor Lavalle

Ecstatic

€ 17.95

Anthony James weighs 315 pounds, is possibly schizophrenic, and hes just been kicked out of college. Hes rescued by his mother, sister, and grandmother, but they may not be altogether sane themselves. Living in the basement of their home in Queens, New York, Anthony is armed with nothing but wicked sarcasm and a few well-cut suits. He intends to make horror movies but takes the jobs he can handle, cleaning homes and factories, and keeps crossing paths with a Japanese political prisoner, a mysterious loan shark named Ishkabibble, and packs of feral dogs.

When his invincible 13-year old sister enters yet another beauty pageantthis one for virginsthe combustible Jameses pile into their car and head South for the competition. Will Anthonys family stick together or explode? With electrifying prose, LaValle ushers us into four troubled but very funny lives.

Victor LaValle lives in California, where he is the Distinguished Visiting Writer at Mills College.
