Henderson Dores is a shy thirty-nine-year-old Englishman, an appraiser for a major art gallery in New York, who is in love with the American people and wants with all his might to be accepted by that society.

To achieve this, he must change his way of being and overcome his inhibitions, which will happen during a bizarre work trip to Luxora Beach, a small town located between Georgia and Alabama, where the eccentric millionaire Loomis Gage and his curious family live.

Stars and Stripes is an amusing novel and a sharp critique of American society brimming with action and intrigue.
