Young Paul artfully cons himself into the lives of New York's bourgeois by claiming to know a wealthy couple's Ivy League children and being the son of Sydney Poitier. After he's caught seducing a hustler in their home, the charade is revealed and Paul is soon back on the street where he sets his sights on a young couple new to the city. From the award-winning writer of The House of Blue Leaves comes this bitterly funny comedy that explores the intimacy of the universe, and the comfort and chaos found within it.
