From Library Journal:

In this novel, reminiscent of the early Aldous Huxley, Andrew MacAllister is a playwright of 40, emerging in 1971 from a long, dry period and caught in mid-life crisis. His new play, a hit in London, may see New York production. Simpler times with wife and small daughter get upstaged as cliched charactersartsy English gentry, a sybaritic sculptress avid for sex, a moneyed Jewish producer with a heart of gold, an intense homosexual stalking Andrewrevel in cultivated chit-chat. Meanwhile, Andrew, in a fog, mulls over childhood memories, family ties, guilt about impulsive, destructive behavior, and some ideas for his next play. An amusing fable he concocts for his daughter provides relief from the depressing main story. Unpleasant, sexually graphic, and laced with strong language, this amounts to an impressive, literate flop. William A. Donovan, Chicago P.L.
