Journal Entry 2 by nice-cup-of-tea from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Sunday, April 2, 2006
This book was like Jeeves and Wooster on a razor's edge - hard and brutal. It's funny in a very sort of desperate way! And ends with the annhiliation of the pleasure and debauchary in a fairly brutal way.

Amazon Review
In the years following the First World War a new generation emerges, wistful and vulnerable beneath the glitter. The Bright Young Things of twenties' Mayfair, with their paradoxical mix of innocence and sophistication, exercise their inventive minds and vile bodies in every kind of capricious escapade. In a quest for treasure, a favourite party occupation, a vivid assortment of characters hunt fast and furiously for ever greater sensations and the fulfilment of unconscious desires.
