The New York Times Book Review called The Beastly Beatitudes of Balthazar B, J. P. Donleavys hilarious, bittersweet tale of a lost young mans existential odyssey, a triumphant piece of writing, achieved with that total authority, total mastery which shows that a fine writer is fully extended....

In the years before and after World War II, Balthazar B is the worlds last shy, elegant young man. Born to riches in Paris and raised by his governess, Balthazar is shipped off to a British boarding school, where he meets the noble but naughty Beefy. The duo matriculate to Trinity College, Dublin, where Balthazar reads zoology and Beefy prepares for holy orders, all the while sharing amorous adventures high and low, until their university careers come to an abrupt and decidedly unholy end.

Written with trademark bravado and a healthy dose of sincerity, The Beastly Beatitudes of Balthazar B is vintage Donleavy.
