Abstract:

"As he recollects the extraordinary events that led to his father Martin's spectacular demise, Jasper Dean recounts his own boyhood of outrageous schemes and shocking discoveries - about his infamous criminal uncle Terry, his mysteriously absent mother, and Martin's constant losing battle to make his mark on the world. From the Australian bush to bohemian Paris, from the jungles of Thailand to labyrinths, asylums, and criminal lairs, and from the highs of fist love to the lows of failed ambition, A Fraction of the Whole is an unforgettable adventure."--Back cover.
