A novel of extraordinary surrealism by the famous playwright.
When Gombald Proval strays on to the head of a giant one hundred miles tall, it's the start of a journey through a blackly hilarious, nightmarish world, an Alice in Wonderland for adults.
As he travels down the giant's body the everyman hero is caught in a gender-bending love affair with the female Chief of Police, thrown in jail with the mysterious Doktor von Pregnant and finally enlisted in the all-out war between the inhabitants of the Left Buttock and the dwellers on the Right Buttock.
Will Gombald escape these myriad perils? And if he survives to reach the Toe, what then?
