I have visited Bohemia and got away unscathed.
Aldo Cassidy is an entrepreneurial genius. At thirty-nine, he dominates the baby pram market and rewards his success with a custom Bentley. But Aldo's bourgeois life is upended by a chance encounter with Shamus-a charismatic writer whose first and only novel blazoned across the firmament twenty years earlier. The two develop a passionate friendship that draws Aldo-smitten also with his new friend's luscious wife-into a life of reckless hedonism that threatens to consume them all.
John le CarrÚ's The Na´ve and Sentimental Lover offers a dark and ribald send-up of both middle-class and bohemian pretensions that will astonish and delight his many fans.
With a Foreword by the Author.
