Party Going

£14.99

Product description

A party of gilded youth of both sexes meet at a London railway station to travel by boat-train to the South of France, where a house-party awaits them, the whole thing to be paid for by the wealthy and much courted Max. An impenetrable London fog, however, prevents any trains from leaving, while the crowd of would-be travellers trapped in the station grows as the afternoon turns to nightfall. Given their excellent connections, the party is welcomed into the luxurious station hotel and given suites of rooms in which to wait; from their opulent seclusion they may observe the patient rabble down on the station concourse. During these few hours the reader discovers a whole nexus of amorous relationships ravelling and unravelling before his eyes. This book is in very good condition apart from some very minor creasing to the corners and edges of the cover and minor scratches to the back of the cover. On the top right hand corner of the front page in blue ink is the name of the previous owner Philip Bromland. The book itself appears unread.
