Volume I of the betimes infamous series. First published in 1922 (and registered, oddly, three years later), Harris' four volumes were later repackaged by the Obelisk Press in Paris. Second-longest, this tale stars young Frank, from his Irish boyhood to his stay in the wilds of America, with a back-handed nod at so many of the improving tomes for boys, popular in Harris' youth. This title was a huge success, becoming synonymous with decadence in fiction and banned everywhere. Also notable for the way Mr. Harris really, really ticked off the estate of Thomas Carlyle, and for Harris' odd stance on masturbation.
