On Sale: November 17, 2009
Add to Wish List
Alik is a former Soviet soldier who has relocated to Coney
Island only to become a gangland enforcer. He's haunted by
memories of his past, and the only thing that soothes his
angst is booze, heroin and his lover, the prostitute
Marina. But as much as Alik encourages her to break away
from the ganglord who owns her, Marina can't because of her
daughter, who never leads the ganglord's side. So Alik
comes up with a desperate plan to save all three of them,
and in doing so, he'll find he's destined to repeat the
past over and over again, including a past or two he might
not even be aware he has, in a story that flashes from
present- day run down Coney Island to the Russia of 10
years ago during the Second Chechen War to turn of the 20th
century Coney Island, when the area was at its peak
amusement park glory and wonder.
