Eldon Schweig, a once famous poet; is on the skids. He is eking out what is left of his lungs and guts in a seedy Greenwich Village hotel. When he isn't struggling with writer's block, he drinks and smokes in the White Horse Tavern, not unlike Dylan Thomas. His life is complicated by an uncooperative desk clerk and by an energetic college freshman, perhaps Eldon's last fan. Set in 1966, the story of this confrontation between hopeful youth and disillusioned old age is seen though the eyes of the youth.
