A densely layered journey into the dark heart of the American Dream that spans continents and centuries In Bradford Morrow's debut novel, lightning-tongued mercenary Peter Krieger travels to Nicaragua to kidnap a man who may be a 480-year-old former conquistador—and therefore could hold the secret to immortality. When Krieger attempts to sell his captive to a reclusive scientist in upstate New York, he sets off on a globe-spanning expedition, in which he encounters an enormous cast of idealists, crackpots, and revolutionaries. And his one-time lover, Hannah Burden, who raises cattle in an illegal loft ranch in Manhattan, still stands between him and his nefarious, astonishing ambitions. A rousingly hilarious, yet tragic epic about the dark side of the American Dream, Come Sunday is fueled by Morrow's captivating style, breadth of reference, and depth of insight, and spins old myths of the New World into unexpected and haunting forms.
