Editor reviews

In Christina Peri Rossi's delightful novel, narrated by David Crommett, we find ourselves in the glittering world of the casino - a world of mystery, addiction, seduction, and obsession. The story centers around the relationship between Jorge, a man obsessed gamboling, and Lucia, a sexy analyst he enlists to cure his gamboling addition. As Jorge explains to Lucia his superstitions about how numbers and stars and luck relate to games of chance, we are entranced by his dark world. Crommett narrates with a subtlety and simplicity, and we find ourselves truly hesitant to leave the glittering world Peri Rossi has created.

Summary

In this wonderfully provocative novel, gambling is both a powerfully erotic and a spiritual experience for one man, Jorge: a gambler addicted to the godlike sensation of mastering games of chance. Jorge's addiction leads him to a mysteriously seductive analyst, Lucia, who attempts to cure his problem. Their dialogues form the core of this "enchanting literary delight" (Oscar Hijuelos).
