Appointment in Samarra is a fast-paced, blackly comic depiction of the
rapid decline and fall of Julian English. English is part of the social
elite of his 1930s American hometown but from the moment he impetuously
throws a cocktail in the face of one of his powerful business associates
his life begins to spiral out of control - taking his loving but troubled
marriage with it.
