A life of continual crimeIn this outrageous roller-coaster story Joost Nillisssen recounts the hilarious adventures of his alter ego Mr Yosht, presented here as an elderly gentleman and a Dylanologist of some repute, who inexplicably finds himself forced into a life of continual crime for which he turns out to be ill equipped.
In sixty-nine short stories and drawings Mr Yosht encounters some unsavoury characters such as the one-eyed undertaker, Tiny Giant and Clean Mary. Others will become his friends and save his life, the indomitable, filthy rich, retired classics professor Pierre Hubnoth who translates Aeschylus while wearing woman's clothes, and his friend the Dominican monk who likes to read Keats and quote Dante.
After the unfortunate death of Tony the Limp, Yosht has to run, not only from the police, but most of all from the revenge of the Limp's widow, Granny O'Malley, who has sworn: 'I will find you and kill you'.
Yosht ends up in a remote and deserted Andalusian village where in the end all the friends are reunited. It is decided to make the village their new home. Plans for the future include a golf course, a hotel and a roundabout nobody is enthusiastic about.
Just when things were looking up for Yosht, Granny O'Malley comes knocking on his door...
