Guy Grand is an eccentric billionaire, the last of the big spenders, determined to create disorder in the material world and willing to spare no expense to do it. Leading a life full of practical jokes and madcap schemes, his ultimate goal is to prove his theory that there is nothing so degrading or so distasteful that someone won't do it for money. In Guy Grand's world, everyone has a price, and he is all too willing to pay it.

Not terribly impressive as a narrative or "novel", there's really no character arc or plot to speak of, just a series of descriptions of elaborate pranks. Don't expect too many christians, magic or otherwise! Perhaps a book greater in reputation than in fact, although it was interesting to see the early shades of "Doctor Strangelove" and "Easy Rider" in the writing.
