"Deliciously wicked and delightfullymischievous, The Biographer`s Moustache mercilessly exposes a literary wor ld of pretension and vanity while poignantly revealing the potential for love across the social divide.". "Gordon Scott-Thompson, a struggling hack, gets commissioned to write the biography of veteran novelist, Jimmie Fane. It is a task which proves to be fraught with extraordinary and unforeseen difficulties. Fane, an unashamed snob, has many pet hates, including younger men with moustaches and trendy pronuncation. Scott-Thompson, however, is extrememly attached to his own moustache and not so particular about his use of language. It doesn't help matters that Fane's wife Joanna isn't yet surewhat she feels about moustaches, but has decided views on younger men. " F ine in dustjacket. 14.00
