Reprint. Originally published: London: Jonathan Cape, 2010.

'A phenomenal writer' Sunday TimesAn intoxicating comedy about youth, the 1970s, the sexual revolution and its aftermath. Summer, 1970. Sex is very much on everyone's mind. Keith Nearing - a bookish twenty-year-old, in that much disputed territory between five foot six and five foot seven - is on holiday and struggling to twist the seventies's emerging feminism towards his own ends.

Torn between three women, his scheming doesn't come off quite as he expects. 'Read it: it is hilarious, often wonderfully perceptive, uncompromisingly ambitious and written by a great master of the English language' Financial Times
