Editorial Reviews

"Fans of J.P. Donleavy-and newcomers to his antics-can rejoice at his latest, rich, ribald, and touching creation." -The New York Times Book Review"A charming, irrelevant novella." -American Way"Donleavy has created a character of enormous force and dignity...It cheers me up, this book. It is not conventional." -Los Angeles Times"[A] marvelously sophisticated, scatological, acerbic, and entertaining novella." -The Washington Times
