Summary
"Disgraced school-teacher turned public writer, Broken Glass fails abysmally to stay out of trouble, as one drinker after another wants to make sure that their portrayal in the notebook, (not so golden this one), will reflect their dynamic, ebullient personality. Like the photographer whose subjects always want to smile for him, Broken Glass is sickened by this false show of success and drowns his sorrows in red wine and riffs on the literature of Africa and the West. Chock-full of life and death, Broken Glass is a mocking satire on the dangers of artistic integrity."--Book jacket of Serpent's Tail edition
