A Friend Like Harvey : What is to be done with a man like Harvey? A man not nearly as good-looking as he like to think he is, yet apparently irresistible to women; a man for whom practically every enterprise is a failure, yet who carries with him an air of success; a fantasist who never runs out of people prepared to believe him - or love him. Harvey is, in short a liar, a fraud and a swine. For decades he cuts a swathe through wives, lovers, friends, relatives, business partners. No one remains untouched by the experience - until a spectacular act of selfish cruelty lands Harvey, finally, in real trouble. 223 pages.
