Pig's Court America

ByElias Sassoon

The novel follows Bernard (Bernie) Courtman, an obese glutton who is also a shyster, fool, sociopath, and philosopher. A remarkable egotist, Bernie’s the ultimate salesman who peddles the world’s inconsequential on street corners everywhere. When not doing that, he’s manipulating our bankruptcy laws and credit regulations to fill his coffers and finance his other schemes. Utilizing assumed names, using forged signatures, stolen credit card and social security numbers, he changes identities as he swindles across America. Constantly in flight from the authorities, he still has time for romantic adventures. Yet, this vagabond is not all bad. While in the midst of his exploits, he makes time to succor the helpless and bring joy to the joyless. Pig’s Court America is a comedic examination of society's wayward economic system and mores that offers a running social commentary. This includes an exploration of our misplaced materialism, and its results.
