it was amazing
Recommended for: grease traps
Read in September, 2006

An nebbishy english vacuum cleaner salesman in mid-century Cuba gets recruited to be a spy for reasons he can't understand. Being that he doesn't know the first thing about spying he has to make it up as he goes along, or if all else fails, just make things up. A fun little novel that rides the line between comedy and suspense. Also, it proves (for stuck up bastards) that a genre novel-in this case spy fiction- can be literature.
