Summary (From the publisher):

A fever dream of a novel about an alcoholic Vietnam veteran, Jimmy, who devotes his government check and his waking hours to the search for a beautiful and majestic street whore, a woman who may or may not exist save in Jimmy's rambling dreams. Gloria's image seems distilled from memory and fantasy and the fragments of whatever Jimmy can buy from the other whores: their sex, their stories - all the unavailing dreams of love and salvation among the drinkers and addicts who haunt San Francisco's Tenderloin District.
