Product description

In his stunning follow-up to the #1 best-selling House of Sand and Fog, Andre Dubus draws us into the lives of three deeply flawed, driven people whose paths intersect on a September night in Florida. April, a stripper, has brought her daughter to work at the Puma Club for Men. There she encounters Bassam, a foreign client both remote and too personal, and free with his money. Meanwhile, another man, AJ, has been thrown out of the club, and he's drunk and angry and lonely. From these explosive elements comes a relentless, raw, and page-turning narrative that seizes the reader by the throat with psychological tension, depth, and realism.

Review quote

"Muscular and disquieting and turn-the-pages-so-fast-you-tear-them good." "Storytelling of the finest kind ... [an] incandescent and absorbing novel." "A very fast and entertaining read... Every passage is expertly, elegantly achieved." -- Madison Smart Bell
