Edgar Oliver unravels the details of his nearly 20-year friendship with Victor Greco, a mentally ill homeless man. Stocky and handsome, Victor reminded Edgar of Popeye the Sailor and shortly after meeting, a mutual attraction of opposites began. Edgar was drawn to the frank masculinity of Victor while Victor was fascinated by the writer in Edgar. And yet, was their connection real? Was it love? Or was Edgar's friendship with Victor, a man who would eventually die alone in the back of an abandoned van, an attempt to seek comfort in another New York ghost, one that Edgar always knew would let him be alone.
