Never before published in the United States, this brilliant and startlingly “American” novel presents a Yankee tycoon's explosive career paralleling the boom-and-bust twentieth century. By the American-educated English author of the justly famous novel I Hear Voices, Tornado Pratt was published originally only in Great Britain in 1977, where it was hailed by Anthony Burgess and Auberon Waugh, among others. The eponymous main character is not likely to win kudos for political correctness, since his story is something of a fictional cross between Hunter Thompson and P.J. O'Rourke, but there is something undeniably likeable, and forgiveable, about his larger-than-life persona. Tornado Pratt's narrative express train roars throughout, becoming of the premier novels told in first-person deranged.
