Signed 1st edition Hardback 1991. Published by Peter Owen.
'We don't review books by women in our paper ... there simply aren't any good ones to write about.' So says Nigel Hughes, a wimpish ex-public-schoolboy, moderately successful as a novelist and critic. But women still cause Nigel more problems than he cares to admit: women like Karen, the unliberated florist with inconvenient ideas about marriage; Isobel, the bosomy literary editor by whom he is sexually harassed; and, worst of all, his appalling wife Gina, a virago of Italian extraction, who beats him up and spends his pay cheques. Then, at a party to mark the publication of his new novel, Nigel meets Eleanor, an attractive and successful writer of raunchy stories.... Nigel's ill-fated career on the London literary circuit is chronicled with deadly accuracy in this satirical, highly amusing first novel.
