    There is much to admire in Kirkwood's book, primarily his gifted sense of humor and the wonderful detail the late author extended to his characters. But in reading this book again after many years, it still annoys me that Kirkwood does not "drop the other gay shoe." Even though the book was published in the early 70s, there was already a body of outstanding gay literature. But heaven forfend that Kirkwood's two main characters should end up in bed together. We can infer a relationship at the end of the novel, but the denouement is red-faced and without the romantic resolution the story needs. I've always been annoyed that the author uses the phrase, "and now the capper" once too often. Perhaps I'm carping too much about a book that was meant to be lightweight. It is sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. But it could have been so much more. Still, it is a book I go back to if I need a smile.

    I read this book many years ago and found it to fit my sense of humor. So I kept the book, but as the years went by, it got rather tattered. (It wasn't new when I got it). I recently had the opportunity to purchase it, so I bought 2 copies--1 for the library, 1 (the unproofed version) for me. I also bought the DVD. If you like off-the-wall humor, you'll really enjoy the book. I didn't find the movie as good. But then, a lot is left out of movies when scripted from books.

    A brilliant comedy. Kirkwood is unsurpassed. A masterful story teller.
