Esme Silver has always taken care of her charming ne'er do well father, Ike Silver, a small-time crook with dreams of making it big with Bugsy Siegel. When Ike gets an opportunity to move to Vegas - and what could at last be his big break, to help the man she knows as "Benny" open the Flamingo hotel - life takes an unexpected turn for Esme. Narrated by the 20-year-old Esme, MAGNIFICENT ESME WELLS moves between pre-WWII Hollywood and post-war Las Vegas. Esme's voice chronicles the rise and fall and further fall of her complicated parents, as well as her own painful reckoning with love and life.
