Blurb

In this new novel, executed with his accustomed brio, the famous novelist X, to whom we are already indebted for so many masterpieces, has decided to confine himself to very clear-cut characters who act in an atmosphere which everybody, both adults and children, can understand. The plot revolves, then, round the meeting in a bus of the hero of this story and of a rather enigmatic character who picks a quarrel with the first person he meets. In the final episode we see the mysterious individual listening with the greatest attention to the advice of a friend, a past master of Sartorial Act. The whole makes a charming impression which the novelist X has etched with rare fidelity.
