Description

After Brooklyn mob widow Rena Ruggiero hits her eighty-year-old neighbour Enzio on the head with an ashtray when he makes an unwanted move on her, she retreats to the home of her estranged daughter, Adrienne, and her granddaughter, Lucia, only to be turned away at the door. Their neighbour, Lacey ‘Wolfie’ Wolfstein, a one-time Golden Age porn star, takes Rena in and befriends her. When Lucia discovers that Adrienne is planning to hit the road with her ex-boyfriend, she figures Rena is her only way out of a life on the run with a mother she can’t stand.

Publisher Review

'An Elmore Leonard-style caper that hits the ground running... funny, touching and exhilarating in all the right places' - Guardian.
