GRAY, John. Dazzled : A Novel. Toronto : Irwin Publishing, (1984). First Edition. Pp. (9),-245,(3). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Aka John MacLachlan Gray, he was born September 26, 1946 in Ottawa, Ontario, andraised in Truro, Nova Scotia. This is his first novel, which the front of dustjacket tells us is "An outrageously funny novel". "Can a vain, neuroticpost-Sixties North American male named Willard, who suddenly finds himself thrown out of the warm bosom of marriage by his insensitive wife, Wanda, s urvive an unwilling journey through the real world of the 1970s - and find true happiness? First, our hero attempts to merge with the plastic culture of our age in the hard-sell atomsphere of a men's wear store. As he reels away in horror, he falls for the siren song of the commune movement. But thecounter-culture is pretty threadbare by now. What is left> How can a man p rove himself in these TV-obsessed times? Maybe as an urban guerilla? Hopelessly ill-equipped for the role, Willard and his friend, the Scrapper, nonetheless set out to astonish the world.... [...] the funniest and most motleyarray of characters ever assembled in a Canadian novel. Welcome to the cra zy world of Jake Slider, Terra Firma, Ogden Opp, Ethereeal, the Trasman andBruce the Cat!" - from the dj.
