Description
This ironic "detective novel" by the author of Heartbreak Tango concerns Gladys Hebe D’Onofrio, a lonely 35-year-old sculptor, perpetually in search of the ideal lover; and Leo Druscovich, a successful art critic, wracked by guilt that surfaces in his repeated sexual failures. This unlikely pair grows into their roles of victim and criminal, as their lives are presented through "evidence," including lists, scribbled notes, transcripts, and interrogations of classic Hollywood actresses. Gradually these two lost souls find themselves entirely dependent on one another—and heading towards precisely the sort of violent ending a detective novel demands.
