Synopsis

From the award-winning and highly acclaimed author of 'Ella Minnow Pea' comes Mark Dunns most ambitious novel to date. 'American Decameron' tells 100 stories spanning 100 years. A girl in Galveston is born on the eve of a great storm and the dawn of the 20th century. Survivors of the Lusitania are accidentally reunited in the North Atlantic. A member of the Bonus Army finds himself face to face with General MacArthur. A failed writer attempts to end his life on the Golden Gate Bridge until an unexpected heroine comes to his rescue, and on the eve of a new millennium, the stage is set for a stunning denouement as the American century converges upon itself in a Greenwich nursing home, tying together all of the previous tales from the 20th century. Zany and affecting, deeply moving and wildly hilarious, 'American Decameron' shows one Americas most powerful voices at the top his game.
