About this title


Grab a pack of KOOLs, rev up the Camara, and tune in "Stairway to Heaven" --you're day-tripping back to 1973. That's the summer Eddie Sacks, having flunked out of college, is driving a cab and trying to figure out exactly who and what he wants to be. The only place he finds common ground with his Nixon-loving, cigar-puffing dad (a.k.a. the Captain) is at Belmont Park, where Secretariat makes his historic bid for the Triple Crown. Into the mix throw the Captain's brother, Gene, of the Qiana shirts and rabid sexual imagination, and Gene's sultry daughter, the aptly named Randi. Meanwhile, paralyzing decisions loom, until the moment when Eddie is forced to take the measure of the father he fears and the uncle he pities, and finally define himself.

About the Author:

Marshall Messer was raised on Long Island and went to Woodstock. He has witnessed more than thirty Belmont Stakes, including the Triple Crown triumphs of Secretariat, Affirmed and Seattle Slew. He has been a cab driver, bartender, garbageman, actor and teacher, and he has played blues harp at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He lives in Manhattan with his family.
