The host of CBS’s The Late Late Show “takes us on a wild ride in his scintillating debut, a combination caper/morality tale with [a] barbed comic energy” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).
Two childhood friends from Scotland and two illegitimate half-brothers from the American South suffer and enjoy all manner of bizarre experiences which, as it turns out, are somehow interconnected and, surprisingly enough, meaningful. An eclectic cast of characters includes Carl Jung, Fatty Arbuckle, Virgil, Marat, Socrates, and Tony Randall.
Love, greed, hope, revenge, organized religion, and Hollywood are alternately tickled and throttled as Craig Ferguson’s madcap plot unfolds. Impossible to summarize and impossible to stop reading, this is a romantic comic odyssey that actually delivers—and rewards.
