Synopsis: What will happen to George Smith? Mysteriously rich and desperately lonely, George appears to be under attack from all quarters: his former wife and four horrible children are suing to get his money; his dipsomaniacal housekeeper is trying to arouse his carnal interest; his secretary, the beautiful, blond Miss Thomson, will barely give him the time of day. Making matters even worse are the threatening letters: Dear Sir: Only for the moment are we saying nothing. Yours, etc., Present Associates.

Despite such precautions as a two-inch-thick surgical steel door and a bullet-proof limousine, Smith remains worried. So he undertakes to build a giant mausoleum, complete with plumbing, in which to live. Hunter S. Thompson called reading this book like sitting down to an evening of good whisky and mad laughter in a rare conversation somewhere on the edge of reality.”

About the Author: J. P. Donleavy has written eleven novels, a book of short pieces and two novellas. He has had many exhibitions for his watercolours and paintings. He lives in Co Westmeath, Ireland.
