"A picaresque novel to stop them all. Lusty, violent, wildly funny, it is a rigadoon of rascality, a bawled-out comic song of sex." (Dorothy Parker, Esquire)
First published in Paris in 1955, and originally banned in the United States and Ireland, J. P. Donleavy's debut novel has since been recognized around the world as the masterful portrait of a charming and shameless American abroad.
