A retired masseuse and a retired boxer take jobs working for an actor, and love and jealousy soon follow. Nick Pafko knows he can't be a professional boxer forever. But he never guessed it would end so quickly - and so wrong. Broke and unemployed, Nick has little choice but to call a number given to him by a friend. On the other end is Scott, a washed-up B-movie actor who runs a so-called massage parlor, looking for somebody desperate enough to work security.
John Schulian, a much-honored sportswriter for nearly forty years, takes us back to a time when our greatest athletes stood before us as human beings, not remote gods. In this compelling collection, Schulian paints prose portraits to remind fans of what today's cloistered stars won't share with them. The result is an audiobook guaranteed to stir memories for the generation that was - and to leave subsequent generations wishing they had it so good.
