Description de l’éditeur
In Becoming Bobby, Michael Konik’s debut novel, brings his vast knowledge of the casino world—and the desperate and delusional characters who inhabit it—to the pages of a story that is by turns viciously funny and disturbingly provocative.
The dark chronicle of one man's cataclysmic descent into mid-life crisis, a contemporary Humbert Humbert, inspired by his TV hero, impulsively trades his middle-aged, cul de sac-of-an-existence for the fantasy life of a Vegas-style high roller. But when his luck runs out, the obsessive quest to “be like Bobby” brings some dark and twisted implications.
