WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY DAVID BRADSHAW The dilettantes who frequent Lady
Tantamount's society parties are determined to push forward the moral
frontiers of the age. Marjorie has left her family to live with Walter;
Walter is in love with the luscious but cold-hearted Lucy; Maurice
deflowers young girls for the sake of entertainment, while the withdrawn
writer, Philip, finds himself drawn to the dangerous political charm of
Everard. As they all engage in dazzling and witty conversation, the din of
the age - its ideas and idiocies - grows deafening.
