As described by
Mr. Petunia by Oliver St. John Gogarty. Presumed First Edition. London: Constable, 1946. 231 pages. Hardcover, small format. In the form of a story of early 19th-century Virginia, Dr. Gogarty utters his grave warning against a recurrent, perpetual, and dangerous type of human monster. Mr. Petunia, though he has been poisoning human relationships ever since the foundations of society, has been released from the clinics of the psychiatrists. A delightful unusual book.
