About the Book

“A conspiracy is everything that ordinary is not. It is the inside game, cold sure, undistracted, forever closed to us. Conspirators have a logic and a daring beyond our reach. All conspiracies are the same taut story of men who find coherence in some criminal act.” Don Delillo Author of “Underworld” “Slurry Seasons” is the quasi-fictional story of two young men who come to Buffalo NY in 1926 in order to escape the arduous farm work and boredom of their Michigan home. They discovered in Buffalo a netherworld of deceit, deception and corruption and they prospered in their new environs during most of the next fifty years.
