In a gloomy mansion in Madison, Wisconsin, a sheltered and sensitive young man slips a visiting professor his secret manuscript—a staggering and beautiful fantasy of knights, knaves, and fools, a rich tale of timeless battles with the devil himself over power and destiny.

John Gardner’s gripping James Bond novels include: Seafire, License Renewed, Icebreaker, Role of Honour, Nobody Lives Forever, No Deals Mr. Bond, and Never Send Flowers.From Library Journal:
This novel by the late Gardner made its debut in 1980. The title's meaning is twofold: Freddy is the central character in this tale of human relationships, but he also is the author of a novel whose story is juxtaposed against the lives of the book's characters. "The net result," said LJ 's reviewer, "is one of Gardner's most subtly moving and persuasive fictions on life and its conduct" ( LJ 3/1/80).
