Perhaps Vidal’s most outrageous novel, this is an indescribable fantasy purportedly set in the city of Duluth (which, however, is near the Mexican border) and involving a TV show also named Duluth (a parody of Dallas), a spaceship that has landed nearby, the antics of a policewoman, Darlene Ecks, and much else.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book was a disappointment. At 39, I'd never read Vidal and now I know why. His pedantic humor is a real turn-off and his graphic sexual humor is neither funny nor sexy.
