Some brief overview of book

"We have proverb in Florida... You know why it's good to be on beach?" Bill smiles, but says nothing. He wants the guy to keep talking.

"Because on beach you are surrounded by idiots on only three sides." "And on the remaining side you have what?" asks Bill. "Sharks..." Paul Goldberg, the acclaimed author of The Yid, takes us behind the scenes of a Florida condo board election, delivering a wild spin on Miami Beach, petty crime, Jewish identity, and life in Trump's America. It is January 2017 and Bill has hit rock bottom.

Yesterday, he was William M. Katzenelenbogen, successful science reporter at The Washington Post. But things have taken a turn.

Fired from his job, aimless, with exactly 1,219. 37 in his checking account, he learns that his college roommate, a plastic surgeon known far and wide as the "Butt God of Miami Beach," has fallen to his death under salacious circumstances. With nothing to lose, Bill boards a flight for Floridas Gold Coast, ready to begin his own investigationa last ditch attempt to revive his career.

Theres just one catch Bills father, Melsor. Melsor Yakovlevich Katzenelenbogenpoet, literary scholar, political dissident, small-time-crookis angling for control of the condo board at the Chteau Sedan Neuve, a crumbling high-rise in Hollywood, Florida, populated mostly by Russian Jewish immigrants. The current board is filled with fraudsters levying "special assessments" on residents, and Melsor will use any means necessary to win the board election.

And who better to help him than his estranged son? As he did in The Yid, Paul Goldberg has taken something we think we know and turned it on its ear. Featuring a colorful cast of characters, The Chteau guarantees that you will never look at condo boards, crime, kleptocracy, vodka, Fascism, or Florida the same way again.
