Winner of the Second Annual Tartts First Fiction Award. These stories explore the darker side of human nature and loss, moving from broken gamblers on the run to small time hold?up crooks and their disconsolate lovers. The settings, too, are varied: Atlantic City, Key West, upstate New York, and?for many of the stories?the parks, playgrounds, and streets of the Bronx. Place, like loss, is also a transformative force. Both place and loss live inside Cioffari's characters to shape desire and the actions that derive from desire.
