"I am sitting on the twenty-fourth storey of a hotel in Singapore. I am having a very serious nervous breakdown..." If you want to know why the hero of A.P. Wolf s riotous novel is going quietly insane in a concrete tower block, you'll have to read Vagabond . It s a story of twenty four hour piss-ups, cock fights, mah-jong, and unsafe sex in the kampongs and back-alleys of old Singapore. It features a pair of dogs called Rape and Pillage, a cat called Shitbag, a very large and very dangerous monkey, a crazed older brother called Dave, a posse of under-age and over curious daughters of local army officers, various murderous Marines, and Richard Chan, the most awe inspiring man in all Singapore. And one hell of a lot of Tiger beer. And it all ends... well, badly
A good copy. The spine is creased and there is some bumping to the covers edges. The slipcase is rubbed but the book's contents are in good condition. Quite a scarce title to find signed.
