'Ostensibly, Pyat's voyages from California to Casablanca and Cairo are those of any picaresque hero, plunging into adventure, danger and miraculous escape, without any purpose except the next step of the journey. But it is also a journey through the prejudices of the 1920s, from the subliminal racism of the British Empire and the suppressed anti-Semitism of Hollywood to the dawning Supermanship of fascism.' - Andro Linklater, Sunday Times. Unmistakeably this is the voice of Colonel Pyat, addict, inventor and bizarre Everyman for the 20th century. In this third volume our hero schemes and fantasises his way from New York to Hollywood, from cult success to the utter limits of sexual degredation leaving a trail of mechanical and human wreckage in his wake as he crashes towards the worst nightmare this century has to offer. With a new introduction by Alan Wall, 480pp in softback. Can be read alone or as part of the Quartet.
