Summary
Having escaped London's hustle-bustle and survived a heart attack aged just thirty eight, Anthony awaits the return of his lover Alison, who is trying to help her daughter incarcerated in a draconian Eastern bloc country. This work is a portrait of a Britain of boom and bust, and greed - and it uncannily predicts the Thatcher years.
