A "skillful, delightful" first novel set in working class New Orleans. When Albert Fitzmorris, who works in a French Quarter fish market, unexpectedly becomes an unmarried father, he finds himself bridling against the strict expectations of the tight, Irish Catholic community in which he was raised. Struggling with fatherhood, Albert further complicates his life when he embarks upon a doomed romantic adventure with an unattainable woman. In the end, Albert must learn to live a life beyond accommodation and his own half-truths in order to find the love he seeks.
