An American Tale.
Emerson Scheismaltz was a killer. He was ambivalent about his occupation, but it really bothered his mother. He lived with her in an old brownstone in Brooklyn, New York. They had moved into it after selling their house two years ago. His mother was very old and had saved a lot of money over the years. She also had a substantial insurance policy, of which Emerson was the sole beneficiary. And of course, there was the huge inheritance left by Emerson's late father, from which Emerson received a monthly allowance, administered by his mother.
Emerson was a killer, and had killed a lot of men in his time. He worked for his Uncle Upats. Emerson's mother wished almost more than anything that he would find a girl and settle down, but Emerson was a dwarf who was born without a penis, so that was kind of out of the question.
