Regular price $13.50 Sale

One early September night in Florida, a young woman brings her daughter to work. April's usual babysitter is in the hospital, so she decides it's best to have her 3 year-old daughter close by, watching children's videos in the office, while she works. Except that April is a stripper at the Puma Club for Men. And tonight she has an unusual client, a foreigner both remote and too personal, and free with his money. Lots of it, all cash. His name is Bassam, and in a couple of days he's bound for Boston from where he'll set off to take his part in an atrocity against America. Meanwhile, another man, AJ, has been thrown out of the club for holding hands with his favourite stripper. He's drunk, angry and lonely. When he comes across April's daughter wandering in the car park, the action he takes and the web of deceit he spins have life-changing consequences. From these explosive elements comes a relentless, raw, searing, passionate page-turning narrative, a big-hearted and painful novel about sex in the seamy underside of American life at the moment before the world changed, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. It seizes the reader by the throat with the same psychological tension, depth and realism that characterised Andre Dubus's bestseller, House of Sand and Fog - and an even greater sense of the dark and anguished places in the human heart. This 2008 William Heinemann Ltd Paperback is in Good condition.
