Beschreibung

The Resurrection of Charles Witchway is a travelogue, a gastronomical guide, and a socio-political commentary; it also is a romance novel, a thriller, and a mystery; and it is, to some extent, an autobiography; but we should keep in mind that it is Pascal''s first novel, and, as did Robert Graves in describing his first book, Goodbye to All That, Pascal says he wanted to "put a lot of interesting things into it, something for everyone." Of course, the reader may begin to wonder as he goes along if Witchway, ostensibly a man of action, paradoxically but eventually will talk his friend Somerville into a state of coma, or perhaps even to death (provided both men don''t die sooner of cirrhosis of the liver from their excessively bibulous habits).

The relationship between the two old comrades during their European "holiday odyssey" provides an Anglo-American tug and tension which the reader, on both sides of the Atlantic, wi
