Henry Bech, the moderately well-known Jewish-American writer who served as the hero of BECH: A BOOK and BECH IS BACK, has become older but scarcely wiser. In these five hilarious new chapters from his life we find him, amongst other places, in still-Communist Eastern Europe, on trial in California and on a criminal rampage in New York City. 'Bech is one of the most entertaining comic creations in recent modern fiction' - Financial TimesBiografía del autor:
