Summary
1946, Trenton, New Jersey: During a domestic dispute, a woman made strong by wartime factory work kills her army veteran husband, disposes of his body, and assumes his identity. As Abe Kunstler, he secures a job in a factory, buys a car, and successfully woos Inez. But for Abe this is not enough: to complete his transformation, he needs a son. 1971: Trenton's heyday as a factory town is long past. The family life Abe has so carefully constructed is crumbling under the pressures of his long ruse. Desperate to hold on to what he has left, Abe searches for solutions in the dying city
