WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS

Wormold is a vacuum cleaner salesman in a city of power cuts. His adolescent daughter spends his money with a skill that amazes him, so when a mysterious Englishman offers him an extra income he's tempted. In return all he has to do is carry out a little espionage and file a few reports. But when his fake reports start coming true, things suddenly get more complicated and Havana becomes a threatening place.

Product Description:

Mr. Wormold, a vacuum cleaner salesman, was short of money. His daughter had reached an expensive age -- so he accepted Hawthorne's offer of $300-plus a month and became Agent 59200/5, M.I.6's man in Havana. To keep the job, Wormold pretends to recruit sub-agents and sends fake stories. Then the stories start becoming disturbingly true. "From the Trade Paperback edition."

Product Description:

A darkly comic story about a vacuum cleaner salesman in 1950s Havanna who is approached to become a spy for MI6.
