9780140182507: The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold (Twentieth Century Classics)

Gilbert Pinfold is a reclusive Catholic novelist suffering from acute inertia. In an attempt to keep insomnia at bay he has been imbibing an unappetizing cocktail of bromide, chloral and creme de menthe. He books a passage on the SS Caliban, and as it cruises towards Rangoon, he slips into madness.

Product Description:

The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold remains one of Eveyln Waugh's most remarkable and self-revealing works. Three years before he wrote it, Waugh suffered "a brief bout of hallucination" similar to the one that besets Mr. Pinfold in this wildly witty and occasionally frightening novel.
