London: Faber, 1979. First edition. pp. 252. Tan papered boards, title in gilt on spine. A fine in fine-clipped dust jacket.
Everywhere in this rich novel is the drama of opposites: the country and the city, scurrility and decency, fear and longing, love and loathing. Above all, sex and death are never far from one another. The narrator, a writer of pornographic fiction, creates an ideal world of sex through his two stock athletes, Colonel Grimshaw and Mavis Car Michael, while he bungles every phase of his entanglement with another woman.
