About this product
- DescriptionOn a cold, rainy night, an aging bachelor named George Tickr prepares to visit his childhood friend Prescott, a successful man who is w one of the leading intellectual lights of their generation. With a hastily baked pie in his hands, and a lifetime of guilt and insecurity weighing upon his soul, he sets out for the Prescotts' dinner party - a party at which he'd just as soon never arrive. Distantly inspired by the real-life friendship between the great historian William Hickling Prescott and his biographer, Tickr is a witty, fantastical study of resentment; and a biting history of a one-sided friendship.
