Young Frank Batcombe, fresh out of his middle-class, Yorkshire home, now belongs to the mod, sexy, brutal London scene. A rising star in journalism, good-looking, smooth and on the make in every way, he has two major schemes in progress: one is to create a scandal that will ruin a Labour politician and gain instant renown for himself; the other is to escape marriage to a girl he believes is carrying his child. The question is - could Frank simply be a half-decent man in a rotten environment? "REVIEW: 'A cautionary tale of swinging London...' (New York Times) "REVIEW: 'A kinky, mod, kaleidoscope scene of bright-plumed 'birds' and opportunistic bastards who will do anything to get ahead... Shocks and hypnotises at the same time' (Publishers' Weekly) AUTHBIO: Bradford-born John Braine ranks alongside Kingsley Amis, John Osborne and Allan Sillitoe as one of the so-called Angry Young Men of the 1950s, whose literature was a protest against class distinctions and middle-class manners. His first novel, Room at the Top, was an overnight success and has been made into a highly successful film, which won two Oscars.
