A sequence of hilarious sexual misadventures transplants Edward Limonov's fictional hero - like himself a Russian emigré poet named Edward Limonov - from a roach-infested welfare hotel to the servants' quarter's of a New York tycoon's townhouse. From there he hopes to launch himself to fame and fortune with the help of his as-yet-unpublished novel. So begins this ribald, wildly funny memoir of a Soviet poet turned butler in the glitzy world of Manhattan's superrich. A literary high-wire act of outrageous audacity, His Butler's Story takes on the American dream's underside with boisterous wit as it parodies the world of emigré cultural superstars and their cronies.
