The Lady Who Liked Clean Restrooms

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)

Jocelyn Guenevere Marchantiere Jones, sometime resident of Scarsdale, educated at Bryn Mawr, has been brought up always to behave like a lady. But what with chiselling divorce lawyers, fraudulent financial advisors and importunate and oversezed suitors, the patience of even the most impeccable lady might wear thin. Which is why Joy ends up with a pair of matching Purdey shotguns across her knees and a .38 Smith & Wesson under her pillow, waiting for the next lying bastard to cross her threshold.

Trigger-happy she may be, and no longer quite welcome in polite society, but Joy Jones, one of J.P. Donleavy's most inspired comic creations, will always follow her South Carolina granny's advice on the matter of clean rest rooms, a preference which has some rather surprising consequences.

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Lilliput Press

    “A beautifully crafted little story, the leading character quite different in essence from Donleavy’s more usual ribald offerings, but nonetheless full of bittersweet observations. Not a long read, but most enjoyable. Recommended!”

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Lilliput Press

    “This is an absolutely thrilling journey around Donleavy’s rampant imagination. One woman’s lifestory which is enough in itself but there is a constant quest to find (and use) only clean restrooms. And where that leads her? Read the book and see. I could not put this book down, laughed until I cried and the ending – absolutely totally unexpected. I cannot reccomend this book highly enough. Buy it now!” CH WARDLE
