Publisher's Summary

Pussy is the story of Prince Fracassus, heir presumptive to the Duchy of Origen, famed for its golden-gated skyscrapers and casinos, who passes his boyhood watching reality shows on TV, imagining himself to be the Roman Emperor Nero, and fantasizing about hookers.

He is idle, boastful, thin skinned and egotistic. He has no manners, no curiosity, no knowledge, no idea and no words with which to express them. Could he, in that case, be the very leader to make the country great again?

What the Critics Say

"In reply to Donald Trump's election victory - and in lightning quick time - novelist Howard Jacobson has delivered a comic fairytale." (The Guardian)

    "Thoroughly disappointing"
    Any additional comments?

    I bought this because of comments by the author reported in the Sunday Telegraph when he spoke of "a real engagement to the heart and mind of of the book" in contrast to children's books (like Harry Potter). I don't read Harry Potter books but this book failed to engage me in any way. The characters were caricatures and the setting was so artificial as to be totally unconvincing. It almost, but not quite, drove me into the arms of Harry Potter!
