Jason's latest collection, containing four brand-new short stories, features famous songwriters, lusty military generals, two-faced private eyes, and a trek into the green hills of Ireland. All of this blended with popular-culture pastiche, dry wit, and stylish storytelling. Jason has caught the hiking bug and decides to walk the Wicklow Way, where he encounters more sheep than he had bargained for. Leonard Cohen's storied life has been well archived, but never with so many Jason-esque liberties taken. (Did you know he beat Fidel Castro in chess? Learned the Heimlich from Frederico Garcia Lorca?) Two detectives are on a mysterious stakeout, but as secrets and motives are revealed their snooping becomes fatal. And, finally, the remarkable rollercoaster love story of Napoleon and Josephine Baker.
