A new novel by Laurence Fleming, whose award-winning first novel was published in 1959 to great acclaim by, among others, Nancy Mitford. It is a darkly comic description of an afternoon session in a clinic for alcoholics, sharply observed and poignant. Readers see glimpses of what has led the characyers to this point and, through interior monologue, their self-delusions and attitudes to their situation. This is a powerful, controversial and unflinching book.
