The Misadventures of Rollo Hemphill (Compilation #1-3)

By Gerald Everett Jones

Comedy & satire, General fiction | eBook, Audiobook


It's a compilation of My Inflatable Friend, Rubber Babes, and Farnsworth's Revenge. Youthful hacker-turned-slacker Rollo Hemphill can’t help failing ever upward in three previously published comic novels, combined in this ebook edition. In My Inflatable Friend, he devises a screwball scheme with a life-sized rubber doll to make his girlfriend jealous and stumbles into a gig on shock-jock radio. In Rubber Babes, when he thinks he’s landed a cushy job heading up a Hollywood charity, he ends up running from the Feds. Then in Farnsworth’s Revenge, he’s on the lam in Europe and gets recruited for a secret government operation that will either solve the energy crisis or destroy the worldwide banking system. The painful consequences of Rollo’s comic misadventures show us all too vividly the perils of pretending to be someone you’re not — and the hazards of stroking every male’s most vulnerable part — his swelling ego.

Rollo’s misadventures are male-centered comedies. I call it boychik lit – stories about young men who have more chutzpah than brains. I want it to be mellower than Tucker Max but edgier than Nick Hornby. Craving a father-son chinwag with those iconic humorists Peter De Vries and P.G. Wodehouse. So, these novels are aimed at young men on the make, mature men who want to fantasize about being young and on the make, and women of any age who apparently can’t help mocking or feeling sorry for clueless males.
