(From the publisher):
In this superb novel composed of fragments of memory, Gilbert Sorrentino captures the unconventional nuances of a conventional world amidst the grit of golden-era Brooklyn. Each episode, affectingly textured with penetrating detail, ferrets out the gristle and beauty found in the voices of the scrappy immigrant boys, hard drinking men, and poor, sexy, magenta-lipped women who inhabit the novel.
