From the slums of the Lower East Side to New Orleans, the Vatican, and
the bloody battle of Belleau Wood, Fixer is the spellbinding tale
of a fearless politician with a limp and a thirty-eight who is faced with
an impossible choice between his career and his integrity.
Harry Leonnoff, uneducated son of Russian Jewish immigrants, overcomes
the poverty of the Lower East Side, a crippling bout with polio, and rampant
anti-Semitism to become the admired Robin Hood of Depression-Era New York.
He helps four mayors get elected, saves nine innocent black men from the
electric chair, and comes to the aid of immigrants and the poor. But the
enmity of Fiorello La Guardia may be too much even for Harry Leonnoff
to fix. Ed Brodow introduces us to one of the most compelling antiheroes
in contemporary American fiction.
