backtrack; Atlantic City (1980)

atlanticcity

Memory and illusions. An aging criminal hopes for a final chance, a young waitress plans a career. Together and separate, they both try – too hard? – to make their dreams come true.

Very well conceived and executed, being both gentle and cruel. In my sad, great little book.
