Knobil goes somewhere, and every woman in sight flings herself on him. I think Duncan was consciously imitating a classic picaresque form where this sort of thing happens

1. I would SO not name a protagonist "Knob." I just couldn't do it. Props to you, Dave Duncan!

2. This description reminds me of Clan of the Cave Bear et seq. Strangely, though I have read many picaresque novels, I read that so long before I knew what a picaresque novel is, and I never associated it with the genre. Hmmm.

ETA: It's from 1990. Duncan is one of the great midlist writers, possibly rather under-recognized in the genre.
