About this title
A bawdy parody of a late 18th-century gentleman's diary. Amos Haggard is a gargantuan, warty toad of a character. Along with Roderick, his idiot sidekick son, he carouses with prostitutes, imbibes copious amounts of wine, evicts the poor and fires his pistols at poachers, dissenters and foreigners.From the Publisher:
Amos Haggard is a gargantuan, warty old toad of a character. Along with Roderick, his idiot son, he spends most of his time carousing with prostitutes and servant girls, imbibing copious amounts of Madeira wine, evicting the poor, and expectorating on and firing his pistols at poachers, dissenters, and foreigners. Eventually, in order to escape their unpaid debts and an impending duel, Haggard and his son are forced to flee their rural estate and embark upon an unscheduled Grand Tour where they continue their vile, debauched behavior amid the crowned heads of Europe. Michael Green's comic classic--republished here on its 25th anniversary with an array of new episodes not included in the original--is a hilariously unreconstructed romp through the seamier side of 18th-century life.
