Edgar Bonjour, after rising to suburban life, gets involved with a drug-trafficking Puerto Rican motorcycle gang from his old neighborhood and is brought down by an affair with a woman in the gang. News of his murder leads to introspection among other Puerto Rican Bonjours, all descended from three French brothers, today known only by their surname Bonjour, whose extended generations branched out, some settling in New York. The Bonjours remain connected by the lore that only one island family carries that name and that, starting with the three brothers - rampant adulterers - every Bonjour male carries a reckless, womanizing gene. This novel of unpredictable and unforgettable characters will transport the reader to a plane where ethnicity becomes universality.
