“This book isn’t funny. The ‘lovable cad’ is actually a jerk and by the time he’d gotten drunk and abusive for the thousandth time, I had made up my mind that the literary establishment that loves The Ginger Man must have all been drunk themselves when they decided this book is a must read.”

J.P. Donleavy tells the story of Sebastian Battle Dangerfield in quick clipped prose. A drunk, a wastrel, and a whoremonger, Danger is a wicked selfish hero with a silver tongue. Read The Ginger Man for the humor and the sadness that is in it.
