About the Book
A philosophical bartender, a broken-hearted hooker, an idealistic novelist, and a gal from the Sally Ann—four characters play out their desperation and dreams in a dingy New York bar circa 1951. Hrant Alianak has given these B-movie types a place to act out their fantasies. The result is a sometimes pathetic, sometimes hilarious pastiche of lonely midnights, love for sale, and the losers who always hope.
