Literary synopsis

Narrator and protagonist is Sir Michael “Snooty” Kell-Imrie, an aristocratic Scots naturalist and behaviorist, author of Big Game of the Great Deeps and People Behaving. Kell-Imrie’s war wounds have left him with a wooden leg, a silver plate in his skull, a pension, and leisure to pursue his researches into human frailty — both in the beds of his London mistresses and in the remote corners of the globe. Couched in the most sparkling prose, this philosophical farce transfixed by violence promenades Snooty, the heir to the showman of The Wild Body, from Mayfair to Southern France and ultimately Persia.
