6″ x 8.5″, 230pp, hardcover with DJ, red boards with black titles on spine, DJ in fair shape, yellowing throughout, binding good

[from Dust Jacket] “Stag Night is a revealing novel about an affair that the men reminisce over for a year and their wives wonder about–the annual Gentleman’s Dinner at a country club.

“The entire action of Stag Night takes place in one evening at a country club.  It begins with the arrival of a tightly girdled whisky-loving Mrs. Riordan (“Fatima”) who has for many years given her Dance of the Seven Veils at the Gentleman’s Dinner.  It ends with tactful and wise Heinz, the head waiter, bidding the police goodnight.  In between is depicted the frenzied activity of the chef and the dour bartender, the ribald behavior of some of the stags, the bewilderment of an innocent young refugee dancer, and the mounting excitement as the moment nears for the showing of lewd movies.  Tragedy in a grotesque form stalks the evening and at the climax the diners receive the surprise of their lives — and we don’t mean the cops in the hall.”
