Every artist is an unhappy lover. And unhappy lovers want to tell their story.'

'A source of wonders and delight' Spectator

Ex-tax collector and author of two unpopular novels, Bradley Pearson wishes to devote his retirement to writing a masterpiece. But the doorbell and the phone keep ringing, and every ring brings with it an ex-wife, a friend in need, a sister in trouble or a young woman seeking a teacher, and so dusty, selfish Bradley is plunged into the muddles and mysteries which will end in his doom.

Winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize 1973.

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SOPHIE HANNAH
