His closest friend -- and mortal enemy -- Friedlander, jazz buff, painter, ad man for bras, has decided to drop everything and travel to Russia because it is NOT the place to go. So begins a rollicking Walter Mitty day during which the two young men have daydreams of grandeur. And as their dreams pursue them they are stunned back to reality by the realization of who they are and where they are not going." First book by this well-known Australian author, described by one jacket blurber as "a Melbourne variant of the New York Jewish novel"; . (Inventory #: 12936)
