Patrick Hamilton is back in fashion after a period of neglect. This volume is a light-hearted satire on the English boarding house, handled with a youthful brio very different from Hamilton's later work. The author's eye is as sharp as ever, the characters acutely drawn and their interplay managed to great comic effect. Anthony Powell describes this work as Dickens with a touch of E.F. Benson'. Published in conjunction with Nigel Jones's biography of Hamilton, Through a Glass Darkly.'
