Maurice is a fifty three year old self centered boozehound an accomplished womanizer living with his second wife thirteen year old daughter and eighty year old fat

    The Green Man PDF/EPUB æ The Green PDF/EPUB ² green mobile, The Green free, The Green Man MOBIThere are two apparitions in this ghost story of a novel one explained and one not And there is the obligatory Amis political incorrectness some intended and some not I read this elder Amis becausea I like to see who he's skeweringb I want reassurance that by comparison I do not drink too much andc his dialogue never disappoints like this snippet between our protagonist and the local rector 'You don't imagine it's a coincidence do you that this was the great age of masochism chiefly in England but by no means confined to here?''No' I said 'An age of masochism couldn't be a coincidence'Turns out God drinks Scotch with a little water
