Abstract:

Mickey Fine, a young man with a promising future in comedy, gets a job as an entertainer at a lavish casino in the Catskills. But he is naive to the more sinister, mobster element of his audience, and soon the body count starts mounting. The acclaimed author of The war of the Roses takes on the New York of his childhood in this darkly funny comedy of errors about success, the mob, and finding true love. Mickey Fine is a young man with a promising future in comedy. Attracted to the crowd applause at a lavish hotel casino in the Catskills, he gets a job as a tumler: part entertainer, part host, all funny boy. But he is naive to the more sinister side of his audience, made up of mobsters and other power players of New York's underbelly. When Mutzie Feder, a Jean Harlow-esque gangster girlfriend with dreams of escaping her brutal reality, gets into the act with Mickey, the sparks begin to fly. But as their circumstances start catching up with them and the body count starts mounting, Mickey and Mutzie start angling for a way out. That, of course, isn't as easy as it sounds.
