Fiction • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1992

Perversion, vapidity, narcissism, and cruelty among the British upper classes are portrayed in coldly sarcastic terms. Not even the hero, who struggles against the parental abuse of his minority and the consequent addictions and warped psyche of his majority, escapes the author's caustic wit. Capturing the author's godlike disdain and vividly portraying the sharply drawn characters, narrator Hibbert chooses to play down many of the quips so as to keep the tone from becoming too comic, for, despite the jibes, the intent is very serious indeed.
