A hack writer struggles to restart his career after a love affair turned frigid sends him into an alcoholic tailspin
Dan Larkin is a hack writer who has always found it easy to churn out scripts, empty bottles, and bed young women. But he meets his match in Allison—a natural blonde who can feel no pleasure. When the sting of unrequited love makes writing impossible, Dan goes into a tailspin that leaves him broke, fired from his job at a Hollywood studio, and on his way back to New York.
Then, between binging on women and rye, Dan gets an idea for the book that’s going to set him straight—assuming he’s ready for it.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author.
