In this immensely captivating and imaginative novel, perfectly set
at the intersection of fact and fiction, Dan Barden superimposes
the story of John Wayne on the story of the Bardens, a family very
much like his own. Frank Barden, Wayne's contractor, is an Irish
Catholic from New York who has come to California in pursuit of the
American dream. His wife, Lillian, becomes disappointed in the
reality of the dream, and questions her faith in men like Frank and
John Wayne. In fictionalized episodes ranging from Wayne's first
love at sixteen to his deathbed conversion to Catholicism, this
novel offers a surprisingly intimate vision of John Wayne and tells
the poignant story of a family struggling to stay intact.
