Two or three years after the Second World War and London's literary world is finding its feet again, Nicholas Jenkins has found himself a job "doing the books" on a "little magazine". This brings about contact with persons known and unknown, including that talented writer of the war-generation, X. Now a Labour MP, Widmerpool abuts on these activities, but may have bitten off more than he can chew in marrying the young and beautiful Pamela Flitton.

“I would rather read Mr Powell than any English novelist now writing.”
—Kingsley Amis
