From AudioFile:

British writer Kingsley Amis, usually ironic and amusing, is not at his best in this novel, but reader Paul Shelley is. His skill gives this story of a biographer writing about an ego-driven minor author a professional patina that keeps listeners balancing the quality of the narration against the occasional tedium of the tale. Happily, Shelley frequently wins. Blessed with a fine voice, he varies pitch, pace and dramatics to create a worthwhile audio experience. He distinguishes well among members of the British upper class, real and presumed. And he, more than Amis, provides the irony and amusement that the latter's many fans will want. T.H. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Gordon Scott-Thompson, a struggling hack, gets commissioned to write the biography of veteran novelist, Jimmie Fane. It is a task which proves to be fraught with extraordinary and unforeseen difficulties.Fane, an unashamed snob, has many pet hates, including younger men with moustaches and trendy pronuncation. Scott-Thompson, however, is extrememly attached to his own moustache and not so particular about his use of language. It doesn t help matters that Fane s wife Joanna isn t yet sure what she feels about coustaches, but has decided views on younger men. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780006548713
