Resuscitation of a Hanged Man, Paperback

Resuscitation of a Hanged Man Paperback


In the confused aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, Leonard English follows a vague vision of redemption and an even vaguer offer of employment, to a Cape Cod resort populated by religious zealots and promiscuous transvestites.

Finding work there as a part-time disc jockey cum private investigator, he falls hopelessly in love witha beautiful, young gay woman.

As winder draws in and his investigative assignment becomes apparently futile as his desire, English hits upon a train of thought that will lead to a finale that is as hilarious and appalling as it is entirely unexpected.
