The Ginger Man - J.P. Donleavy

Okay, perhaps I am just not understanding the satirical nature of the book.


Satire = A literary work in which human foolishness or vice is attacked through irony, derision, or wit.


I will try to read it with this in mind.


This is currently my "after dark" book--during daylight hours, I'm reading The Shining and it's scaring the wits out of me!
