KIRKUS REVIEW

One goes on reading this as an affront to the intelligence and taste which the author assumes you haven't got. . . . Charlie Sparrow, a putative writer for Time, actually FBI, is checking out a computer millionaire, Marshall, who might, God forbid, be the next president. But those files -- probably some computer -- seem to be wrong and Marshall's daughter, Lisa, who had schlepped around in the sack and had an abortion, is a virgin. At any rate Sparrow is sure she was a virgin (unless, as he says, it was all rubberbands and ketchup) and if so, she couldn't have been Marshall's daughter. She might then be a ""Ruskie."" The ""Ruskies"" are at the bottom, an operative word, of all this and Mr. Ardies does not hesitate to use that tag and also spells it that way.
