Frank Gauci steps off the Callisto into the coldest winter ever, clutching a cardboard suitcase. Its all he has, until he finds a ruby ring, Joe Medora, and Mary.When Frankie and his best friend Salvatore open the doors of the Moonlight Cafe, life seems good: downstairs there is sweet music, hot food, beautiful girls: and upstairs, there is gambling. Stick or Twist. Its Frankies call. But luck becomes a stranger to Frankie. With a mass of debts, five daughters, and another child on the way, he turns to the card table one last time.

He gambles, and he prays: this time, it has to be a boy.Its a boy! cries Salvatore. Bambino, Frankie! And, my father, who is Frankie Bambina to his friends, poor unlucky Frank to have so many daughters, twists in reckless joy...And so begins the chain of events which will haunt his family for forty years.Through the eyes of Dolores, the Gaucis youngest child, Trezza Azzopardi reveals a world rarely seen in fiction—the Cardiff underworld of the sixties.

In prose that is sensitive and utterly compelling we discover the cafes and bars, the crumbling estates, the gaming rooms— and the secrets that destroy a family.
