Brooklyn. Midnight. 1926 an assortment of oddball guests gather for a night of pure debauchery. As the candles flicker and the temperature rises, inhibitions melt away as quickly as the glasses are drained and the party takes on a life of its own. A hard-boiled, jazz age tragedy originally banned when published in 1928, this sophisticated and sexy story is an intoxicating cocktail of poetry and pure rhythm.
