Legs inaugurated William Kennedy's critically-acclaimed cycle of novels (including Billy Phelan's Greatest Game and Ironweed) set in his hometown of Albany, New York. True to both life and myth, Legs brilliantly evokes the flamboyant career of the legendary gangster Jack Legs Diamond, who was finally murdered in Albany. Through the equivocal eyes of Diamond's attorney, we watch as Legs and his showgirl mistress, Kiki Roberts, blaze their gaudy trail across the tabloid pages of the 1920s and 1930s, emerging as emblematic figures from an era of American innocence -- and corruption.
