Son of Influence by Erik Lewin
"A profound, heartfelt story-even when hilarity ensues." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS Can a soft boiled egg like Delton Lowe resist a brass knuckle father who wants him to join the mob-related family business? A witty coming of age saga filled with goombas, whack jobs and loopy neighbors. Delton's cigar-chomping, pastrami-loving father wants him to join the family business as a lawyer. But that means law school. And even though Delton never wanted to go near a courtroom, he finds himself thrown into a pressure-cooker law school run by bow-tie-wearing sadists, and surviving only with the help of a hysterical, pill-popping buddy, a crazy-pervert artist neighbor, and a gorgeous political junkie he's falling hard for. To his own surprise, it turns out he's got a knack for law, but as the moral ambiguities of his father's business become clearer, Delton must make a choice. Does he have it in him to defy his father's wishes? Or will family loyalty win out?
