The Old Man And Me by Elaine Dundy
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Betsy Lou Saegessor is bent on revenge. Having been the cossetted darling of her very rich father until his remarriage to a woman she considers well beneath her, Betsy is devastated when said father dies - not least because he's left all his money to the drippy second wife, Pauly. Pauly goes on to marry the legendary and elusive Englishman, C.D. McKee, who in turn, when Pauly dies, inherits the money that Betsy Lou would like back in her own bank account. So Betsy sets out to seduce and betray C.D., who is fat and ugly but very entertaining and incredibly sexy. She follows him through the night clubs of London, listening to jazz and smoking hash; shops with him at antique fairs; and accompanies him to her first Country House Weekend, where the lampooning of Americans proceeds in earnest. A wickedly funny novel falling in love - with an Old Man and the Old World - despite the best intentions.
