The Bust-Out King by Avery Corman
A laugh-out-loud-funny comic novel. A madcap caper novel about a nefarious uncle, Uncle Rocco, and his besieged nephew, Joseph. Uncle Rocco is a man of many talents, none of them legal. In his will, Rocco leaves his memoirs to his nephew, a mild-mannered professor, exposing Joseph to the world of the scam, the caper, the bust-out. Joseph tells us about Uncle Rocco s capers, which keep topping themselves in their comic outrageousness. With the same wonderful comic skills he displayed in his classic, Oh, God!, Avery Corman delivers a comic treat with The Bust-Out King."
