A novel about downsizing from a life of ease and upgrading to one of sleaze. Many people would kill to be Domina Tey. She's one of life's successes: an award-winning playwright living in a beautiful house with an equally celebrated writer. A lucky woman. She knows it. And she appreciates it. But she isn't happy. Life is too easy. It's becoming stultifying, negating her creative force. She decides upon a spell of sleazy living to give both her work and her soul a spring-clean -- and elopes with her typewriter in search of just a hint of degradation. She finds it in Bayswater. Safe in bedsit land, she immediately sets about getting to know her neighbour, a candidate for the priesthood half her age.

A very worthwhile read. I don't know why I have neglected ~Patrick Gale for so long. It has been my loss.

This is one of Patrick Gale's early books and is very different to his later ones. I didn't particularly like any of the characters in this one and was left wondering what the point was.

Thanks to raeliz64 for sending me this book which was on my wishlist. I've only read the later novels so keen to see how this one compares.

This was described by Journalist Val Hennessey as 'Iris Murdoch on speed' . I could see her point to a degree with some of the interactions between characters but the plot line - not so much. I do enjoy Patrick Gale's later novels which have more depth.
