The Chronicles of Jasper and Gary                       

As a frustrated Manhattan accountant with aspirations, Jasper decides to make the leap from decimal points to art, hoping to find a woman of his dreams. Whether it's a dubiously staged Tempest on the Lower East Side or the production of a musical version of Kafka, Jasper is unstoppable and his equally aspiring sidekick Gary chronicles their adventures, which include Philadelphia lawyers with a penchant for slurping mussels, voluptuous investment bankers with a taste for jewellery, hippie parents, sultry French songstresses, mini-skirted Freudian therapists, chamber musicians flaunting cleavage, gay socialists and the New York City Fire Department's ice hockey team, among others.  

This is P.G. Wodehouse meets Rabelais meets James Joyce meets Groucho Marx in a hilarious, witty and unpredictable account of romance, sexual anarchy, and art.
