Review:

"Contrasts the complacency of prewar Britain with the nastiness of what was brewing on the Continent. It remains effortlessly readable" ( The Times)

"Brilliant" ( New York Times)

"One reads it with a feeling of increasing respect for his mastery of the trade. One has the same delight as in watching a first-class cabinet-maker cutting dovetails" (Evelyn Waugh)

Book Description:

A coming-of-age novel that moves from genteel British society to the grim underworld of Paris before the war
