Chosen by Jo
A 1961 satirical, and sometimes farcical, novel about marriage, adultery and incest within a group of civilised and educated people.
© “The characters in this book are unpleasant, their morals questionable and their actions immoral, Martin Lynch-Gibbon especially. But somehow that made for a more beguiling read and though the cast infuriated me they enchanted me, too. A timeless and immensely enjoyable novel where the web of lies and deceit has been expertly spun.” – Rachel
