From the cover: “It is during the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 that seven-year-old Thomas Moran finds himself accidentally embarking on a career in pickpocketing. In the years that follow, he becomes a master of his dubious craft, and grows to manhood travelling from state to state across America. His picaresque journey takes him through Prohibition and the Depression; into the frenzied highs of the Hootchy-Kootchy and the dying vineyards of California, accompanied by an array of richly drawn characters desperately clutching at the crumbling American Dream.
