A fun-filled farce with a touch of fantasy that takes place on three levels and uses three different voices. The key character is Wendell Wellnigh, a downsized cosmologist who loves three beauties; Faith, his globe-hopping fiancee whom he suspects is CIA; Hope, a marine biologist who smells and tastes better than any woman he ever met; and Chastity, his traffic-stopping teen cousin, for whom even Dudley the monkey has the hots. Wendell abandons cosmology and starts a business that adds sex and music to whale-watching. Unky, Wendell's saviour and Chastity's father, writes a best-selling novel titled the Hooker You Have Reached Is No Longer in Service. Meanwhile, an enigma named Michael Maker courts Chastity, keeps getting younger, and makes all who object to him forget why. All's well that ends well, and this novel ends very well for all concerned.
Some of the funniest material I've read in years. The late Herbert A. Kenny, former book editor of the Boston Globe, author of a dozen books, and co-founder of the National Book Critics Circle.
