Description

In this novel, M.T.Kelly – the master of a clear intense prose authentic to the feel of the streets and the urban city –tells the story of Robbie Blackstone, a sixteen-year-old boxer about to turn pro, and his relationships with his mother Lucy, her boyfriend Shiner, his trainers Stu and Jimmie, and Rocco, an ex-contender for the world championship. The setting is a noir city of diners, taverns, boxing clubs, dance halls inhabited by men whose grudges are a mask for broken dreams, and women whose broken dreams cannot mask a guileless yearning. It is in this world, at this moment, that Robbie asserts his independence in an entirely surprising way.
