Back in print for the first time in 30 years, this epic and hilariously comic adventure follows the fictional Colonel Pyat through real historical settings as he fumbles and forces his way through life as an antihero everyman, leaving a trail of wreckage as he passes through some of the most chilling moments of the 20th century. This thrilling third installment of the Pyat quartet sees Pyat hitchhiking across the United States, acting in Hollywood, and avoiding perverts in Cairo. As Pyat schemes and fantasizes his way from cult success to sexual degradation, he pulls strength from his wild dreams and profligate inventions. Nazi, addict, and rebel, Pyat weaves a complicated tapestry of lies and deceit, wherein the reader discovers that this wild farce becomes a lens for focusing universal and uncomfortable truths about society and man.
