MOTT THE HOOPLE is an underground classic 60's comic novel. It is written in a freewheeling bawdy style. It's hero, Norman Mott, is a Rabelaisian figure who refuses to wear anybody's label, insists on being his own man, and, through a series of comic misadventures, discovers just who that man is. Some people will know Mott the Hoople from the British rock band that took its name from the book.

Review:

"Mott the Hoople should be approached like a trip to an amusement park: one goes to have fun, and the rides and the freaks, the cotton candy and the hot dogs, are all there now for one's ready pleasure. The book moves at the Marx Brothers' pace and is one of the funniest I have read in years." -- Josh Greenfield, Life Magazine

"A garganua. A clown, but not without nobility. Here is Willard Manus' achievement." -- Chicago Tribune
