When she hangs up the phone after hearing her lover say "We're coming right now", she knows in her heart of hearts what she hadn't faced up to before: that this man she loves, this "prince" from nowhere, is a hoodlum. He has just robbed a bank and a man got killed. It's the mid-1970s. She's nineteen years old. Right now, as if in a waking dream, she falls headlong from the tight, narrow space of her father's uptown apartment into a reeling world of escape — Spain, Morocco, Greece — and from being an almost well-behaved girl into the life she's always wanted, for better or worse.
