This laugh-out-loud novel pictures upper-crust Brits as only a real British writer could do. The society scandal turns at least one family upside-down in this insider’s look at contemporary England.
— Margaret, Pittsburgh
In this wickedly astute portrait of the intersecting worlds of aristocrats and actors, the author establishes himself as an irresistible storyteller and a deliciously witty chronicler of modern manners in contemporary--and assuredly not as classless as believed--England.
