Overview

Barney Panofsky is a seemingly ordinary man who has an extraordinary life: he smokes too many cigars, drinks too much whiskey, and is obsessed with hockey and one of his ex-wives. At age 67 he decides to write the history of his life to dispel the attacks made by his worst enemy, who has just published a book that reveals the most embarrassing incidents in Barney’s past: shady business deals that lead to success, three failed marriages, and the disappearance of Barney’s best friend Boggie, a possible murder in which Barney remains the prime suspect. With a dry humor and a tendency to make fun of every aspect of Barney’s history, this novel journeys through the story of his delightfully dissipated life in his own words.

 

Barney Panofsky es un hombre aparentemente corriente que tiene una vida extraordinaria: fuma demasiados puros, bebe más whisky de lo que debiera y está obsesionado con el hockey y con una de sus ex esposas. A sus 67 años decide escribir la historia de su vida para desmentir los ataques que su peor enemigo acaba de publicar en un libro que descubre los asuntos más comprometedores del pasado de Barney: turbios acuerdos empresariales que le llevaron al éxito, tres matrimonios fracasados y la misteriosa desaparición de Boggie, el mejor amigo de Barney, un posible asesinato del que sigue siendo el principal sospechoso. Con un humor ácido que le permite burlarse de todos los aspectos de la historia de Barney, esta novela viaje por el relato de su deliciosa vida disipada en sus propias palabras.
