THE SPECTACLES OF MR. CAGLIOSTRO

 

 Harry Stephen Keeler spent a year in the Birkdale Asylum for the Insane and and after that was hell-bent to share some of the good times with his readers. Written in 1924, it’s the paranoid tale of a man who simply can’t get any­one to believe he’s the real heir to his uncle’s fortune. Not only that, in order to inherit, he has to wear a pair of godawful heavy blue spectacles—for a whole year! The only person who might help him is the beautiful young nurse from Australia, but she’s not really sure who he is. I tell ya, it’s enough to drive a man crazy!

  This 360-page trade paperback contains the complete text of the novel written in 1924.
