Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0099458187, Paperback)WITH A FOREWORD BY DAVID LODGE. When inspiration leads Theodore Gumbril to design a type of pneumatic trouser to ease the discomfort of sedentary life, he decides the time has come to give up teaching and seek his fortune in the metropolis. He soon finds himself caught up in the hedonistic world of his friends Mercaptan, Lypiatt and the thoroughly civilised Myra Viveash, and his burning ambitions begin to lose their urgency...Wickedly funny and deliciously barbed, the novel epitomises the glittering neuroticism of the Twenties.
