Out of Stock - Order Now (usually dispatches in 7 days)

With film rights acquired by Francis Ford Coppola, this comic novel of instant riches is back in stock. From the author of A Clockwork Orange, One Hand Clapping is a comedy of game shows and greed, high stakes and the high life. The tragi-comedy of used car salesman Howard Shirley, his photographic brain, and the modern world's trivia and trivialities makes for vintage Burgess-at once hilarious and provocative. "Witty and shrewdly joyful."-The New York Times Book Review "A funny, pointed novel."-The New Yorker "Ingeniously and devilishly funny."-The Atlantic Monthly
