A novel drenched in the history and politics of Cleveland, from the end of World War II, when it was on top of the world, to the end of the 1960s, when it was the butt of jokes. The star-crossed story of novel’s two main characters—a boy who grows up to become a city councilman and a girl who grows up to be a TV anchor—is intercut with stories of famous Clevelanders: Eliot Ness, Alan Freed, Carl Stokes and many more.
