Polly!

A comic novel of hope and blasphemy

Copertina Dettagli

Autore: Stephen Goldin

”Blasphemous...highly offensive”...and VERY funny! Meeting Polly is an adventure where you’ll discover: why snowmen can’t dance; a scene from a previously unseen Marx Brothers movie; the Three Laws of Thermodynamics; and the secret of the universe. Oh, and also the recipe for the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Just remember: Nothing`s ever hopeless unless you lose all hope.


”Blasphemous...highly offensive”and VERY funny.

Herodotus Shapiro has had an unbelievably bad week. His wife left him. The IRS is after him for thousands of dollars. His home/bookstore burned down. On his way to take refuge at his brother`s place he got a speeding ticket. And now his car has broken down in the middle of the desert in front of a large mansion. What more can go wrong?

But now his world takes a turn for the weird. The mansion has a snowman on the front lawnin the desert in July. The house, which is bigger on the inside than on the outside, is owned by Polly, the most preternaturally beautiful young woman he`s ever met. Polly is an acrobat, a gourmet chef, a psychologist, an international financial consultant, a physicist and a woman of who-knows how many other incredible talents. She has an unbelievable library, an art collection of all the world`s great masterpieces and a print of a previously unknown Marx Brothers film. Her toilet paper is actually silk.

And she seems to have some mysterious plans for him....

”All hands on Decalogue! A protagonist readers will find it easy to identify and empathize with, a classic journey story told with wit, wisdom and deceptive ease, and the most interesting guest star everwhat`s not to like, here? Perhaps writers who attempt a book like Polly! wanna crack or two across the face for their audacity (to parrot conventional wisdom)but not if they can manage to pull it off this entertainingly.”

Spider Robinson, co-author of Variable Star by Robert A. Heinlein and Spider Robinson
