With scarcely a backward glance, Ollebeare dumps his unwanted newborn on the doorstep of his brother and hastily disappears. Willoughby is raised alone - neglected and unloved except for the attentions of a devoted (though somewhat unsavory) old servant.At the proper age Willoughby must find a job and is thrown into a somewhat tilted modern world for which he is wholly unprepared.But after lost jobs, squalid boarding houses, unpaid debts, unsavory love affairs, and a reunion with his father, does he defy the foul fiend? The ending may surprise you.
