When the aristocratic Golden family moves into a self contained pocket of New York City, a park in Greenwich Village called The Gardens, their past is an absolute mystery. Our fearless narrator is an aspiring filmmaker who decides the Golden family will be his subject. He gains the trust of this strange family, even as their secrets gradually unfold — love affairs and betrayals, questions of belonging and identity, a murder, an apocalyptic terror attack, a magical, stolen baby, all set against a whirling background in which an insane Presidential Candidate known only as The Joker grows stronger and stronger.
