Set in downtown manhattan urban, THE LOSERS' membership tells the tale of Martin Sierra, an unfortunate author hooked on the personals. His trip brings us into the East Village, pre-9/11--and in touch with Nikki, his dream girl, who is still inconceivable romantically but turns into his buddy and confidant in the course of his illuminating misadventures.
Pilgrimage, the adventure to sacred target, is located in all of the nice religions of the realm. it's a trip either outwards to hallowed locations and inwards to non secular development; it may show penance for earlier evils, or the quest for destiny strong; the pilgrim could pursue non secular ecstasy within the sacred websites of a selected religion, or search a miracle throughout the medium of god or saint.

Kelly stopped beating his head against the wheel and contented himself with gripping the wheel in both hands and trying to break it loose of the steering column. “Better be careful about that,” David Beame said, nod-ding at Kelly's whitened knuckles. ” That was true enough. But he had to do something, and he couldn't very well climb into the back seat and pulp Lieutenant Slade's face, as he wanted to do.
Yes, sir,” Kelly said. He saw that Lieutenant Slade was fidgeting about, debating whether to insist that Kelly men-tion the backhoe which they had lost in the bargaining with Maurice. He was probably also trying to think how to let the general know about him killing the cyclist. Kelly placed a finger to his lips to warn Slade off. ” Slade was close enough to the microphone for it to pick up what he had said. General Blade had heard. ” Page 47 “You little shit,” Kelly said. ” the general asked.
He didn't want anyone accidentally uncovering the bag and remembering it later, after Kelly had been killed by a mysterious man in a mask. The only thing he had to worry about now was when to do it. Tonight? No. Not yet. Give Kelly more time to show his cowardliness. It might even be a good idea to put it off as much as a week. Then, when he did kill the son of a bitch, General Blade would be even more disposed to treating the matter lightly. General Blade would see what a coward Kelly was, and he would be pleased to have Richard Slade in charge of the camp.
