Additional Info

A poet one day takes a draft that transports him over the rainbow into the land of chimeras and wicked wizards. In the real world he leaves behind, he is victimized by his vulgar mistress who steals his materials and sells them to the mailman. Then a fag Chinese landlord cuts himself in on the action, and finally an internal revenue man. Many people live high off the hog of the writer's back. Meanwhile, the poet confronts a psychiatrist who is obsessed with penes as though with God and who measures genius by them. He escapes from him, only to end up in the looney bin where he meets Sts. Anthony (a nut for flagellation), Augustine, Teresa (a male, and later stripper), and even the Prince of Darkness himself. Now his job is to escape from the Prince. All of this becomes the subject of his latest "secret book," which then becomes a means of even more money for the parasites who steal from him.
