Why the hell haven't I got this book anymore? I don't remember culling it from my collection, but I can't find it anywhere - gutted!

Harrison's trademark juvenile humour masking a deeper, satirical swipe at militarism, imperialism, capitalism, sexism, and probably some other -isms that I don't remember, and can't check now that the book's gone missing. Grrrr!!
