"Roger Micheldene, an English publisher, is on the loose in the U.S. He spends an Octoberweek shuttling between New York and Budweiser College in Pennsylvania. Thi s exercises all his British appetites.snobbery, gluttony, anger, sloth and lust. But Amis roasts Americans as well and serves us familiar dishes, though in a piquant sauce: the precocious undergraduate author of a far-out novel, an earnest young priest, and an alcoholic literary agents nymphomaniacal wife. They are all presented with glee and gusto and the keenest wit, butit is Roger Micheldene, at once a prototype of the insufferable Englishman and an individual with sufficient humour to win our sneaking sympathy, who dominates a supremely entertaining comedy of bad manners." Name to flyleaf , else very good, with minor bumping to corners and one-inch missing from tail of dustjacket. 35.00
