With World War I the age of heroes was over. Having been groomed for a world that had ceased to exist, the Bright Young Things of the 1920s danced away from the losses and horrors of the war in an endless whirlwind of parties and extravagancies. It is now 1938, another war is in the air, but David and Joan Scott-Fowler, cling on to their past and the adrenaline fuelled memories of their youth, unable and unwilling to face or adjust to the changing world. Once David's younger cousin Peter comes to work for him, with his girlfriend Helen in tow, the cocoon of the Scott-Fowler’s household is irrevocably ruptured.
By arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
