Crumbtown

(2003)
A novel by

 
Some might say that Crumbtown isn't a place. It's a state of mind. And for the residents of this sinking, stinking, carcinogenic, potholed neighborhood, "There's bad luck in the world, and then there's crumbluck." But for Don Reedy, a true victim of this phenomenon, his crumbluck is about to change.

Sentenced to 15 years in prison after a botched armed robbery, Don is paroled early when a television producer decides to turn Don's tragic story into a television show. Back in Crumbtown and working as a special consultant on the shoot, Don wrestles with delusional actors, pines for a beautiful Russian bartender, and reunites with cops and accomplices alike. But when the opportunity presents itself, Don decides to do something really daring: He robs the re-enactment of his legendary robbery. With the cameras rolling and the line between television and reality blurring, the hunt for Don - and a ratings coup - is on.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
