Malcolm : A Comic Novel Paperback / softback


The twenty-first-century revival of James Purdy continues with his classic novel of innocence and corruption.

Introduced simply as "the boy on the bench", the titular character of Malcolm is a Candide-like figure who is picked up by the "most famous astrologer of his period" and introduced to a series of increasingly absurd characters and bizarre situations.
