(From the publisher):
To Bishop Waller drawers were merely the first move in a long, grim contest with the devil, a contest in which long, grim drawers served as the shock troops of righteousness. They were an important but unattractive gesture in the general direction of God—a grotesque but essential step in a complicated ritual of spiritual costuming.
So begins this hilarious hellion in which Thorne Smith, the author of the famous Topper books, tells, among other things, the story of a man with too much underwear and a girl with too few clothes and how they try to strike up a happy medium in a nudist camp. The story is not recommended for people who have work that must be done immediately or for those who are not prepared to laugh until it hurts.
