About the Book

Set in the world of contemporary art, Guy Kennaway's new novel delivers his trademark absurdities and laugh out loud moments.

As the globe's most successful super-dealer, Herman Gertsch spends his charmed life jetting between his galleries in Zurich, London and New York, fawned over by artists, curators, politicians and the uber-rich.

As Herman's empire grows, nothing seems to get in his way, until he makes the calamitous decision to open a gallery in a rural English backwater. Here, Herman encounters John "Brother" Burn, a penniless hippy known as the slipperiest man in south Somerset, and therefore the western hemisphere.

In the riotous comedy of errors that follows, Kennaway pours mistaken identity, Amazonian tribes, Swiss food, DMT, Arab royalty, and million dollar artworks onto a spin painting of a story about art and life that dazzles.
