1970 - Heinemann
1970 - Coward McCann
It took me a long while to get round to reading this, as the subject matter put me off. I should have had more faith! For one thing, this is an extremely funny book. All the characters are quite ridiculous, and the whole premise is completely off the wall, but it does work very well. Very entertaining, and one of his better books.
A film was made of this in 1978, starring Robert Mitchum and Elliot Gould. I haven't seen it, but by all accounts, it is dire.
