Book Description Viking Press, 1997. hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st Edition. New York. 1997. Viking Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 211 pages. December 1997. hardcover. Hugo Maurice Julien Claus (5 April 1929 – 19 March 2008) was a leading Belgian author who published under his own name as well as various pseudonyms. Claus' literary contributions spanned the genres of drama, the novel, and poetry; he also left a legacy as a painter and film director. He wrote primarily in Dutch, although he also wrote some poetry in English. His death by euthanasia, which is legal in Belgium, led to considerable controversy. Cover: Martin Ogolter/Ellen von Unwerth. 0670867462. keywords: 41903. inventory # 24689. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Jake and Michel are two rogues with respective hearts of gold. Their desire for booze and betting entitles them to front-row stools at the Unicorn, the local tavern in their Belgian village. But one morning they are overcome by more urgent desires, needs that can’t be fulfilled in the Unicorn. And so they head for the promised land of silk and money: Las Vegas. It doesn’t take long before that animal called desire rears its ugly head on both sides of the Atlantic, resulting in horrible acts - both damning, and sending shock waves across two worlds. Two forms of desire go afoul of each other, revealing the dark menace lurking behind the facade of glitter and glamour in the New World, of friendship and innocence in the Old World. Commenting on the turmoil at the Unicorn and on Jake and Michel’s hell-raising in the gambling casinos and nightclubs is the ghost of larger-than-life Rickabone: card shark, layabout, wayfarer, ne’er-do-well, barroom sage.
