    When Sue Glassman's family needs a new home, Sue relents, after years of resisting, and agrees to convert to Judaism. In return Sue's father-in-law, Sy, buys the family - Sue, Dan, and their two daughters - a capacious but ramshackle beachfront house in Rockaway, Queens, a world away from the Glassmans' cramped Tribeca apartment. The catch? Sy is moving in, too. And the house is haunted.

    Timmy and Chowderhead and Peg are lifeguards. They spend summers sitting in those tall chairs, smoking dope and staring at the waves, swatting insects, tormenting seagulls. Winters they work shit jobs like unloading trucks at Mickey's Deli. At night, winter and summer, they drink. Drink and get rowdy. Then there's Alex, the girl who gets away, not only from old boyfriend Timmy but also from "Rotaway" - on scholarship to a rich-kid's college in New England.
