Genius, Dennis, Patrick

Dennis, Patrick
New York Harcourt Brace World 1962 First Hardcover Good Good+ Jacket

Binding is tight and square, hinges are sound - no cracking. Pages and edges are clean with clean endpapers - no names, writing or marks. 308 pages.

Take the irreverent spirit that produced "Auntie Mame" -- add a dash of Tobasco -- and you have the funniest book of 1962. The story is set in Mexico City. Its hero (the word is used loosely) is Leander Starr, one of the world's most famous directors and THE world's most famous deadbeat. He is on the lam from the U.S. Dept. of Internal Revenue; from two overdue back alimonies; from the bills for support of his long-distant, long-unseen daughter; and from a formidable millionairess, a longing lady between fifty and death who could put Mr. Starr back on Easy Street--if only he could bear the sight of her. If laughter is your dish, dig in for a hilarious feast! 026743
