Product description

Butch Bray, foreman of the Runset Co-op Meatworks in rural Tasmania, is about to turn 41 and still a virgin. Unbeknown to Butch, his best mate Pinhead is conspiring with the town's leading ladies to overcome this very delicate matter. While Pinhead and the boys bet on the outcome with bookie Pimples Pike, Butch is trying to make a dud greyhound run faster by feeding it adrenalin-rich adrenal glands lifted from the Co-op. Complications arise when Co-op manager Burt Jones decides to retire and hand-over to a cost-cutting accountant with amazing eyebrows. Plots tangle and spin off the rails, the dog goes bonkers, and Pinhead wickedly introduces adrenal glands into the human food chain with spectacular results.

Hard cover published 1975. Dust jacket has some shelf wear but has served well protecting the actual book. Front and back plates are clean and intact, as is the spine and page block. Overall very good condition.
