A noir memoir.
Attempting to reignite the flame they travel to Manhattan for a romantic Christmas. Joseph; a former male prostitute. Her; his beautiful former assistant. Their perfect love had grown that perfect summer. By the time winter came, maybe he still loved her.
Joseph awakes drugged, naked and alone on a freezing warehouse floor on New Year's Day. It becomes evident that she has orchestrated this mess. Joseph, who stood tall, who was the image of virility, servicing the rich and powerful women of pre-recession Dublin, is now homeless, sick, weak, and heartbroken.
He remembers his ex. His real ex, the breakup had smashed him. He never found all the missing shards of himself. And so, we follow his journey across America, working, living, loving and remembering ... finding the pieces and putting himself back together.
Can he forget her, move on, forgive and be forgiven? And as he develops as a person, through life and love and the friendships he makes in New York, Detroit and Los Angeles, can he find his path home, will he see her again? Does she even exist?
