(From the publisher):
The world was his oyster - John Alcott Rawlie's personal oyster - a glittering place of hit shows, ravishing women, showers of brilliance at opening nights.
Rawlie lived hard and fast. Then it began to change, and the road turned downhill. The women grew cheaper, the wine thicker, and soon there was too much of both.
It was the night before the opening of the newest Rawlie show - already the Broadway wisenheimers were calling it a turkey - that John Alcott Rawlie got drunk and took stock.
The world was a hangover, a huge, bad, bitter joke - and only John Alcott Rawlie knew the punch line to it.
