Motherless Brooklyn

Winner of the British Crime Writers' Gold Dagger Award 2000 and the National Book Critics Circle Award; Fiction 1999

Lionel Essrog, a.k.a. the Human Freakshow, is a victim of Tourette´s syndrome (an uncontrollable urge to shout out nonsense, touch every surface in reach, rearrange objects). Local tough guy Frank Minna hires the adolescent Lionel and three other orphans from St Vincent´s Home for Boys and grooms them to become the Minna Men, a fly-by-night detective-agency-cum-limoservice. Then one terrible day Frank is murdered, and Lionel must become a real detective. With crackling dialogue, a dazzling evocation of place, and a plot which mimics Tourette´s itself in its freshness and capacity to shock, Motherless Brooklyn is a bravura performance: funny, tense, touching, and extravagant.
