The hilariously wicked journey through the sexual trading places of the US by the TS Eliot Prize winning Hugo Williams. A sexual Odyssey of hilarious frankness by one who valiantly never tries to miss an opportunity. This is not just the baffling America of trailer parks, image therapists and sauna complexes with yodelling and kebabs. It is also the America in which men throw themselves at his feet while women flee in the face of his entreaties as he tries to consummate his love affair with the US
