Just in time for election season, Dermot McEvoy gives us a political novel which is as acidic and insightful as it is humorous. "Our Lady of Greenwich Village" explores a heated New York City congressional race in which the Virgin Mary appears to have made herself available to a Republican Congresswoman. Not surprisingly, the vision is exploited for political purposes, and the game is on - with tabloid columnists from New York Daily News and New York Post stoking the flames. Meanwhile, in the name of theological bipartisanship, a liberal spin-meister named Wolfe Tone O'Rourke also has a meeting of sorts with Jesus' mother and decides to challenge the Republican. "Our Lady of Greenwich Village" is a raucous read, with cameos by real-life politicians, as well as lots of characters who more than resemble past and president politicos. This book should have a lot of New York and Washington insiders squirming, as they read closely. McEvoy portrays the modern day Village as a bastion with a rich past yet still filled with rogues. Anyone with an interest in the kind of big city political history they don't write up in textbooks should read "Our Lady of Greenwich Village." ($22.95 / 384 pages / Skyhorse)
