    Dr. Brinkley's Tower
    Dr. Brinkley's Tower
    Longlisted for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and shortlisted for the Governor General's Literary Award: Fiction Equal parts Mark Twain and Gabriel Garc a M rquez, Robert Hough's wildly imaginative new novel takes us to 1931 and Coraz n de la Fuente, a tiny Mexican border town where the only industry is a run - down brothel. Enter Dr. Romulus Brinkley and his gargantuan radio tower, built to broadcast his revolutionary goat - gland fertility operation. Fortunes in Coraz n change overnight, but not all for the good. Word of the new prosperity spreads, and the town is overrun by the impoverished, the desperate, and the flat - out criminal. The tower's frequencies are so powerful the whole area glows green, and the signal is soon broadcasting through every bit of metal it can find: fencing wire, toasters, even a young woman's new braces. Meanwhile, Dr. Brinkley has attracted the affections of Violeta Cruz, Coraz n's most beautiful resident. But is he really all that he seems? Peopled with unforgettable characters and capturing a young Mexico caught between its own ambitions and the imperialist designs of its neighbour to the north, <i>Dr. Brinkley's Tower</i> is a stunning achievement in storytelling.
