J.P. Donleavy - The Gingerbread Man (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780349108759
First published in Paris in 1955 and originally banned in America, J. P. Donleavy's first novel is now recognized the world over as a masterpiece and a modern classic of the highest order.
Set in Ireland just after World War II, The Ginger Man is J. P. Donleavy's wildly funny, picaresque classic novel of the misadventures of Sebastian Dangerfield, a young American ne'er-do-well studying at Trinity College in Dublin. Dangerfield's appetite for women, liquor, and general roguishness is insatiable - and he satisfies it with endless charm.
Dorothy Parker called The Ginger Man "a rigadoon of rascality, a bawled-out comic song of sex." . . . how can you top that?
Pitch black Irish humour. A book that comes with hint of marmite.
