Welcome to the Great American Graffiti Novel Number one New York Times bestselling author Adam Mansbach returns with a blockbuster tale of revenge, redemption, and the worldâ€™s most beautiful crime. Dondi Vance is the son of two famous graffiti artists from New York Cityâ€™s Â“golden eraâ€ť of subway bombing. Recently kicked out of his prestigious prep school for selling weedÂ—and his motherâ€™s Brooklyn apartment for losing his scholarshipÂ— heâ€™s couch-surfing his way through life, compulsively immune to rumors that his long-lost father, Billy Rage, has returned after sixteen years on the lam. Â But Dondiâ€™s old man really is backÂ—whatâ€™s left of him, that is. A wizened shell of his former self, Billy is still reeling from a psychic attack by an angry sha-man in the Amazon basin when Dondi finds him at the top of a pseudo-magical staircase in DUMBO. The uneasy reunion comes just in time: Anastacio Bracken, the transit cop who ruined Billyâ€™s life and shattered his crew back in 1987, is running for mayor. Only by rallying the forgotten writers of the eighties for an epic, game-changing mission can Billy and Dondi bring Bracken down. Â In this mind-bending journey through a subterranean world of epic heroes, villains, and eccentrics, Adam Mansbach balances an intricately plotÂted, high-stakes caper with a wildly inventive tale of time travel and shamanism, prodigal fathers and sons, and the hilariously intertwined realms of art, crime, and spirituality. Moving throughout New York Cityâ€™s unseen comÂmunities, from the tunnel camps of the Mole People to the drug dens of Crown Heights, Rage Is Back is a kaleidoscopic tour de force from a writer at the top of his game.
