"When we last saw our hero he had taken to his bed in England, his beloved home in Tuscany having inexplicably capsized into a ravin. As Rancid Pansies opens, Samper is recuperating in Sussex...when he learns that film rights to his book on Millie Cleat--the one-armed yachtswoman whose inadvertent death, televised on Christmas Day, gave his book an enormous boost--have been sold. This windfall is sufficient to finance a return to Italy and provide the time to indulge a long suppressed aspiration: to write the librettto for an opera."--P.2 of cover.
