This is a wonderfully absurdist book on the Los Angeles restaurant owner Virgil Marcel and his dealings with the London's Everlasting Club. The book alternately describes the story of Virgil Marcel and his family members, and the history of Everlasting Club. The book abounds with characters that have unusual ways to treat food and drink, a requirement to become a member of the Everlasting Club, which range from merely funny to gross. However, even the most absurd events are written in an almost matter-of-fact style, not dissimilar to the humor known from Monty Python.
