Description

Arthur Morgan travels to New York in the 1950s. He encounters gilded youth, the rich and eccentric, and is invited to the White House. He succeeds in meeting the great and the good. But the repercussions of unfulfilled desires and love will resurface long after Arthur has returned to France.

Publisher Review

'Quiet, wryly funny prose ... a delight' Independent on Sunday; 'It is shamefully parochial of us that this eminent writer has been so ignored by the anglophone world' Sunday Times; 'A big-hearted coming-of-age shaggy-dog story' The Spectator; 'Deserves a place alongside Flaubert's Sentimental Education and Le Grand Meaulnes' New Statesman; 'Deon is an outrageous storyteller' TLS
