Synopsis: After a fifteen-year break, fate brings customs agent Floyd Beck and lingerie czarina Viola Flury back together again. Their rekindled romance plays out against the early days of women?s lib, when both sexes were adapting to their brave new world with varying degrees of triumph, bewilderment, and denial. The supporting cast includes canine psychiatrist Portia Clemens, a rabid libber who thinks nothing of sex change operations for her male dogs; the mad Chef Eggli, sausage maker par excellence; flamboyant and volatile Nestor Buffez, who considers silk pajamas his business suit; George Hash, recovering from his divorce in a barrage of singles bars; and Breeze Squawfoot, an unrepentant cougar on the prowl. The action ricochets between JFK Airport, northern New Jersey, and the Swiss Alps in this ?wisecracking, irreverent spoof of modern sexual mores? (Kirkus Reviews) with ?truly funny repartee? (Publishers Weekly). Customs Violation, originally published in 1987, is a hilarious and heartbreaking account of the ongoing war between the sexes.
