With an Introduction by Tim Parks
A group of rich, spoiled and idle young people heading off on a winter holiday are stranded at a railway station when their train is delayed by thick, enclosing fog. "Party Going" describes their four-hour wait in a London railway hotel where they shelter from the grim weather and the throngs of workers on the platform below.

Review:

"Green's works live with ever-brightening intensity--it's like dancing with Nijinsky or Astaire, who lead you effortlessly on." - "The Wall Street Journal""Green's novels-- have become, with time, photographs of a vanished England--Green's human qualities - his love of work and laughter; his absolute empathy; his sense of splendour amid loss - make him a precious witness to any age." - John Updike"Green's books are solid and glittering as gems." - Anthony Burgess
