Ray Parisi is in trouble. Fired from his anchor job at ESPN
after one-too-many public humiliations, he is holed up in a
motel and in desperate need of a break. His ex-wife is
shacking up with another guy in his old house, a bookie
wants to kill him, and he’s wanted by the New York State
Police. A few days before the Fourth of July, he
unexpectedly receives an inheritance from his long-lost
father, and it seems like all of his problems might be
solved. Determined to get his life back together, Ray
hatches an imaginative but highly suspect plan to win back
his wife, dashing from Connecticut to Las Vegas to Memphis
in an attempt to secure his future before the past runs him
down. The cast of characters he meets along the way is as
loveable as it is absolutely insane.
If Swimming with Bridgeport Girls “were a Springsteen
album, it would be Devils & Dust: partly set in
Las Vegas, it evinces hope and humor but is dark and gritty
at its core” (Kirkus Reviews). Anthony Tambakis’s
first novel is an uproarious romantic comedy about a
charismatic gambler who loses everything and sets off on a
mission to—against all odds—finally get it right.
