Quick Overview

Thirty stories in the incomparably distinctive voice of the author whose publishing career started with the comic novel Rappaport. One story starts with “I won a house in a lottery”, and proceeds to career seemingly out of control – except it isn’t. Other stories open in equally startling fashion. Try: “Hergesheimer flees his marriage in a twenty-four year- old car …”; “How do you steal from a thief?”; “Show me a man without tantrum and I’ll show you a man without blood”; “The prettiest damsel in many a moon drops a smile in Hergesheimer’s direction, which he, ever the gallant, snatches expertly up, with a bow courteously returns.”
