This is the story of the comic, relentless struggle for survival of Austin Gibson Grey, the accidental man.
Austin is one of those people who thrives through the destruction of others.
The others, in Austin's case, include his successful elder brother, Matthew, and the women who, one after the other, are convinced that they can 'save' him.
In this role we meet Dorina, Austin's estranged wife, Mitzi, his alcoholic landlady, and a selection of other women who involve themselves in Austin's fate, with hilarious and appalling results.
