About this title:
John Robinson, chairman of the $1,000 million Robinson Securities, is one of the richest men in Britain, but is more interested in establishing an alternative community in the Somerset countryside than pursuing power. After he is framed with a lump of cannabis resin he embarks on his new lifestyle at Williams Farm and invites like-minded souls to join him. In this idyllic backwater Rosalind and Orlando start a love affair, while others take up drugs or religion. As the community is cultivating its bed of flowers, a sinister crime is planned in Whitehall...

About the Author:
A journalist, satirist and novelist, Auberon Waugh was born in Dulverton, Somerset, in 1939, the eldest son of Evelyn Waugh. He was educated at Downside and Christ Church, Oxford, where he made a number of lifelong friends and the first of his enemies. Vendettas were to be a feature of his journalism. Waugh was a columnist for The Spectator for more than twenty years and wrote a diary for Private Eye for fifteen. He was a regular contributor to The Daily Telegraph (most famously his 'Way of the World' column which ran for ten years) and the Sunday Telegraph for much of his working life. He became editor of The Literary Review in 1986. In addition to his witty, 'vituperative' columns, Waugh wrote five novels. Auberon Waugh died in 2001.
