Title Profile & Character Information

Lionel Asbo

Annotation
Self-named after Englands notorious Anti-Social Behaviour Orders, thuggish Lionel Asbo aims to persuade daydreamy nephew Desmond Pepperdine to drop the books and get interested in pit bulls, porn, and the like. Desmond resists, but things get infinitely more complicated when Lionel wins the lottery and hires a public relations firm. Amis remains true to his own arch and acidulous vision, but the publisher hints that this book could be a commercial breakout. With a 50,000-copy first printing.
