Frolic of His Own

Annotation
With dazzling wit, William Gaddis brings his unmatched powers of observation and satirical sensibilities to bear on the American legal system. A Frolic of His Own is a tour de force. It is a profound entertainment. It is scalding and Swiftian . . . darkly hilarious.--The New Republic. 1994 National Book Award winner.
