Looks like it’s right for us. “Feel the buzz of revolution coming from Dig City, where thousands of bottom-feeders have formed a subterranean colony in trumped-up tunnels built by century-20 swindlers. Fast Eddie, an acrobatic whiz kid left on the steps of this freaky future metropolis, boogies through a half-dozen levels of deception - street magician, pickpocket, professor of grift, double-dealing adoptee, casino employee, and commander of the underground hive - to the tragicomic source of his genealogical secret.” Nice interior illustrations by Marek Bennett. Appears to be sort of a twisted SF novel with beat and literary qualities. I’m thoroughly intrigued and give it the nod. #14605
