Stargell had it all: a prestigious job at a think tank; a beautiful Greek wife; and money enough to indulge his expensive tastes. But when he loses his job for using the think tank’s computer to play the horses, his life starts taking a very definite turn for the worse. Suddenly he’s broke, his wife is going crazy, and a very determined Lower East Side

Overview

Stargell had it all: a prestigious job at a think tank; a beautiful Greek wife; and money enough to indulge his expensive tastes. But when he loses his job for using the think tank’s computer to play the horses, his life starts taking a very definite turn for the worse. Suddenly he’s broke, his wife is going crazy, and a very determined Lower East Side loan shark has his number. In the midst of all this danger and chaos, however, the resilient and darkly comic Stargell pushes his limits while playing it by ear. Stargell is sustained by those rare moments of redeeming grace when every experience feels vital and valuable, when even in the darkest moments.
