John Hawkes decides to call this book "The Lime Twig" thereby putting off a great number of people who can't imagine any book with such a title worth their time. The Lime Twig"?! Well, the book doesn't have anything directly to do with limes except that lots of stuff you wouldn't think would smell like limes do to many of the characters in the novel. What does a lime smell like, anyway? Does it even have a smell.

Hawkes makes us see through a glass darkly, disorientates us. Our feet stub and stumble though the fields of his prose, flint-sharp, serrated. Somewhere far in the distance is a narrative, a story, some Dick Francis Thriller with its thugs, beatings, murder and horse racing. But this is far far off in the fog, thin and pale and unremarkable.

The Pleasures of John Hawkes by Leslie A. Fiedler. It is, indeed, in the interests of the latter that he endures seeming in 1960 that unfashionable and suspect stereotype, the experimental writer.

Fly up to Aldington, Mr. Bailey, fly to Aldington with your poor lame sister, for Sidney Slyter says he needs you now! Five pounds? Not half enough, I’d say!

By John Hawkes Introduction by Patrick McGrath Preface by Robert Coover. This volume brings together three early novels by John Hawkes. The Lime Twig is set in the underworld of postwar London; Second Skin is a tale of suicide and new life on two mythical islands; and Travesty is a monologue on fear and eroticism that takes place during a drive at night. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.

But it would be unfair to the reader to reveal what happens when a gang of professional crooks gets wind of the scheme and moves to muscle in on this bettors' dream of a long-odds situation.
