"Expect the worst
And that's what
You'll get
Only it will be
Much worse."

This is the first book of a trilogy, the second book being Are You Listening
Rabbi Löw
, and the third a completed but unpublished volume, title not known
at this time. Donleavy claims that he cannot find a publisher for the third book in
the series, citing among the reasons given, concern about possible feminist backlash
for some of its content. A bit of trivia: Schultz is the only one-word-titled book by
Donleavy (there is a lengthy subtitle following the main title for Leila).
