Appleton Schneiderabout this book: There are many subjects and scenarios in these stories. There's plain humor (" . .all work and no play makes Jacques a Buhldoi . ."). The most comprehensive analysis of male sexuality you'll ever read concludes when Madam Eclair summarizes strategy for running an ultra-elite bordello (" . . . experimentation, variation, and diversity are stimuli to sensuality, and actually even carnally creative attributes of the upper class . . . but be careful to keep things within limits. Beyond eclectic sexuality, TOO MANY KOOKS SPOIL THE BROTHEL!").
The massacres and misery of migrating survivors of warfare into the harbor city of Stook. A trashed sailboat but not it wasn't vandals that made off with a-tiller. In search of prudish entertainment free from any affront, "Wait 'til the nun signs Shelly".
Inspired by and based on turns of phrase, mutilated syntax, dismembered figures of speech (and worse), BUTTERBEE should be a fun, interesting, inspiring, arousing, even in places turn-on book.
The cover? One of the stories concerns a long-abandoned ocean-side amusement park that Tony and his wife restore only to have it utterly destroyed forever the while they're attending a banquet commemorating their extraordinary sacrifices and efforts -- and their philanthropy to so many . . . significantly the hordes of "belfs" that ravage and lay waste then burn everything.
