SIMPSON, Leo. Kowalski's Last Chance. Toronto : Clarke, Irwin & Company Limited, (1980). First Edition. Pp (8),[1]-200. 8vo, dark green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Leo James Pascal Simpson (b. 1934, Limerick, Ireland), Canadian writer, novelist, journalist. "This book is probably your last chance to believe in leprechauns. You doubt it? Look what happens to Joe Kowalski, the engaging small town policeman who is the hero of Leo Simpson's new novel. Joe lives with his two old aunts in Bradfarrow, Ont., watches Kojak on television and thinks how nice it would be to own a sheep farm. He's blissfully unaware that his life is about to be transformed by an encounter with a notorious $10-million bank robber. The suspected bank robber throws Joeoff his stride by claiming to be (a) innocent and (b) a leprechaun - one o f many who migrated to the New World. Joe ponders this - and acts decisively. The ensuing sequence of events exposes not only a Swedish nurse-murdererbut the embarrassing bare flesh of a corrupt police chief and his wife, no t to mention the inner workings of Mini-People Incorporated, New York, a possibly benevolent, possibly sinister multinational which seems to possess innumerable pots of gold. Who are Mini-People? How many people are Mini-People> You may well ask. Certainly once the orgies and the evictions begin in Bradfarrow, it's clear that Mini-People may turn up anywhere. Leo Simpson has written a superb comic novel. Its wistfulness for a simpler world and simpler human values is a healthy tonic amidst the complexities of the '80s."- from the dj. Very good in nicked dustjacket (a few closed tears). 15.00
