Summary
"In 1962 Seattle, Walter Cousins, a mild-mannered actuary takes a risk of his own and makes the biggest error of his life: He sleeps with Diane Burroughs, the sexy, not-quite-legal British au pair who's taking care of his children for the summer. When Diane gets pregnant and leaves their baby on a doorstep, it sets in motion a tragedy of epic proportions. Their orphaned child, adopted by an adoring family and named Edward Aaron King, grows up to become a billionaire Internet tycoon and an international celebrity--the "King of Search"--who unknowingly, but inexorably, hurtles through life toward a fate he may have no way to determine. Sweeping, propulsive, and darkly humorous, Ed King reimagines one of the world's greatest tragedies--Oedipus Rex--for our own era, bringing contemporary urgency to a tale that still has the power to shock and inform."--Cover p.[4]
