Nicholas Trumpeter is a young clergyman trapped inside a loveless marriage. His wife, Gillian, is an atheist whom he has learnt to endure. A passionate affair with the lovely Danae, daughter of his millionaire patron, becomes his main pursuit in life. The pressure of too little work and the boredom of parish community duties take their toll on Nicholas' sanity - until he eventually finds a new role for himself as a useful member of society. A tale of comic brilliance and cruel irony.

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.
