Zip: A Novel of the Left and the Right
So what's a nice Jewish boy like Ira Goldstein doing managing a flashy Puerto Rican boxer named JÚsus? What is his mother doing in the arms of Solomon, the scrap-metal king of Detroit? And what, for toppers, is J. Edgar Hoover doing in a chair suspended over a boxing ring in Havana, Cuba? Charge it all to zip-- that elusive form of human energy that makes hearts leap, cash flow, ideologies tremble, the world go round. Ira could sure use some zip, so he tries to find it.
