The Woman Chaser from the Author: Charles Willeford. 'No one writes a better crime novel than Charles Willeford' Elmore Leonard By day, Richard Hudson, woman-chaser and used-car salesman, works his crooked car lot with much success. By night, he returns home to a family of misfits. One day, seized by a feeling of terror and revulsion, he realises he's wasting his life in the meaningless pursuit of money. His only hope, he decides, is to pursue his dream of making a movie. Richard completes his cherished project, but forces beyond his control swiftly reject and destroy it. As a result, enraged and humiliated, he goes on a bender of epic proportions, drinking his way through the underbelly of Los Angeles and exacting a monstrous revenge on all who have crossed him.

Charles Willeford Omnibus 2 from the Author: Charles Willeford. Charles Willeford's varied, colourful life informs his tongue-in-cheek attitude towards the violence, treachery and plain craziness evident in his four novels in this second omnibus. The Woman Chaser allows its hero, Richard Hudson, womaniser and used car salesman, to play skilfully on all the vulnerabilities of men and women . . . but not without a comeuppance. Cockfighter is the least likely pulp novel of these: it is a masterpiece, a portrait of silent, passionate masculinity set against the underbelly of the rural South of the early 1960s. The Burnt Orange Heresy is a long satire on art, art criticism and collecting, and reflects Willeford's favourite pastime. The Machine in Ward Eleven collects six stories that display the madness that lies at the heart of politics, as Willeford lays bare the American Dream.
