'A gloriously funny novel . . . it still brings a smile to my face forty years later' JILLY COOPER

'Definitely demonic, exquisitely carved, deadly murderous comedy' DAWN POWELL, WASHINGTON POST

' Elaine Dundy's young and sexy American heroine, named (excellently) Honey Flood' LOS ANGELES TIMES

In The Dud Avocado, Elaine Dundy revealed the life of the young expatriate in Paris in all its hilarious and heartbreaking drama. With The Old Man and Me, written when Dundy was living in England in the early 1960s, she tackles the American girl in London, a bit older but certainly no wiser.

There's love and there's revenge. Betsy Lou Saegessor is bent on revenge. Her father is dead and to top it off, the vast fortune that should have been hers has ended up, through the second marriage of her now deceased stepmother, in the bank account of the legendary and elusive Englishman, C. D. McKee.

So Betsy sets out from New York to seduce and betray him. C .D. is fat and ugly, but boy is he sexy. Betsy follows him through the night clubs of London, grooving to jazz, smoking hash and plotting murder.
