Alfred Chester's masterpiece, The Exquisite Corpse, was one of the literary sensations of the 1960s, a surreal, homoerotic phantasmagoria that became a cult classic. It was preceded by this, his only other novel, a work more straitlaced in literary form but just as shockingly original in content.

It tells the story of a cynical Brooklyn undertaker, Harry, and the object of his affection, a beautiful and deceased young man named Jamie. But does Jamie really exist, or is he merely Harry's fantasy, the illusion that makes his life endurable? Harry's friends are divided on this matter, and Chester leaves it to his readers to decide.

David R. Godine is proud to republish this upside-down take on the transforming powers of love, out of print since the late 1950s.

Surreal and unflinchingly true to life, at once light, witty and imbued with heavy existential angst ... Sometimes brutal and hilariously waspish, but always humane' - Sam Jordison, Guardian Unlimited (UK).
