I understood that this story was taken from a view of a camp counselor at Camp Tabotchnick located on Blue Point Long Island.

Quirky, wickedly funny cult novel from the late 1960s. About a twisted and oversexed camp counselor named Nemiroff. The cheapest this originally $1.50 short novel sells for currently is about $150.00! I loved it and laughed. M. J. Rennie, February 19. 2010. Author of PERMISSION, THE PERFECT WIFE, ALTERNATE EROS, SEX AND SEXIBILITY.

Sorry, director of Thank God It's Friday and Weekend at Bernies II: I reached by quota on neurotic-Jewish-boys-obsessed-with-sex with Portnoy's Complaint, and your rendition of this stale, totally 60's subject matter seems both less funny and more G-rated. Maybe I'll pick up a Max Shulman book again, but that'll have to do.

As the author says 'a tasteless novel" Definiitely not PC. What was hilarious in my 20's is just kind of dumb now - but still a few good laughs.

If you can find a copy of this - read it. Might be the funniest book I've ever read. Ridiculous and hilarious coming of age story.

Has been out of print for years but one of the funniest books I have ever read. Ridiculous story of a children's camp.
