Item description for The Extraordinary Consequences of Senor Higgins's Holiday in Estragon by L. Frankson P....
Almost indefinable novel that's not quite magic realism, murder mystery, family saga, comedy, political intrigue, or romance, but more and different than any of them. Arriving in a tiny town 'somewhere on the border between Andorra and Albania', the hero finds himself in what seems to be an ideal world, where the sun always shines, the local cuisine is delectable, the women are all stunningly beautiful, and everyone has an irrepressible sense of humour. Under a complex system of betrothals, children are brought up to honour and respect themselves, one another, and their parents. Music, religion (of a singular kind), food and twin passions for hats and surreal gossip are major industries in Estragon. But beneath this sunny surface lie ancient feuds and sinister dealings. Stumbling on these launches Seor Higgins on a quest into Estragon's darkest hidden history - a realm of illicit lusts, ravening greed, financial chicanery, corrupt politicians, and one highly ambiguous fatality. And he has his own emotional mystery to solve with the luscious Bernadette... In a style that embraces wry humour, low farce and high seriousness, P. L. Frankson has created a unique imaginary world, and a novel like no other.
