9780141180212: The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold: A Conversation Piece (Penguin 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.
