Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from St. Peter s Umbrella: A Novel In a romantic environment of out-of - the-world Slovak villages, with a ragged red Umbrella and a brand-new brass Caldron as the good and evil geniuses Of the piece respectively. The Um brella, which is worth a king s ransom, is sold for a couple of orims to the White Jew of the district, becomes the tutelary deity - or shall I say the fetish - Of half a dozen parishes, and is only recovered, after the lapse of years, by its lawful owner, when, by a singular irony of fate, it has become absolutely valueless - from a pecuniary point of view. The Caldron, on the other hand, which is erroneously supposed to contain count less treasures, and is the outcome of a grimly prac tical joke, proves a regular box of Pandora, and originates a famous lawsuit which lasts ten years and ruins three families - who deserve no better fate. How the Umbrella and the Caldron first come into the story the reader must be left to find out for himself. Suffice it to say that grouped around them are very many pleasant and - by way of piquant contrast - a sprinkling of unpleasant personages, whose adventures and vicissitudes will, I am convinced, supply excellent entertain ment to all lovers Of fine literature and genuine humor.
