One early September night in Florida, a stripper brings her daughter to work. Aprils usual babysitter is in the hospital, so she decides its best to have her three-year-old daughter close by, watching childrens videos in the office, while she works.pExcept that April works at the Puma Club for Men. And tonight she has an unusual client, a foreigner both remote and too personal, and free with his money. Lots of it, all cash. His name is Bassam.pMeanwhile, another man, A. J., has been thrown out of the club for holding hands with his favorite stripper, and hes drunk and angry and lonely.pFrom these explosive elements comes a relentless, raw, searing, passionate narrative, a big-hearted and painful novel about sex and parenthood and honor and masculinity.pSet in the seamy underside of American life at the moment before the world changed, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. It seizes the listener by the throat with the same psychological tension, depth, and realism that characterized Andre Dubus number-one best seller - iHouse of Sand and Fogi - and has an even greater sense of the dark and anguished places in the human heart.
