THE SMITH HOUSE by Bill Purdie

£3.50

The Smith House is a comedy of naivete, misunderstanding, and unusual guests in a unique hotel that tells a story for mature audiences. A traveling salesman on his way home develops car trouble when passing through a small town. He is forced to stay overnight at the only hotel in town, The Smith House, advertised as a “full-service hotel”, which is a local euphemism for “brothel”. He soon finds himself in very difficult circumstances that worsen when his wife makes a surprise visit.
