Product description

DR PETWORTH is not, it had better be admitted, a person of any great interest at all. He is white and male, forty and married, bourgeois and British - all items to anyone's contemporary discredit. He is a man to whom life has been kind, and he has paid the price for it. He teaches; that is what he does. He is also a practised cultural traveller, a man who has had diarrhoea for the British Council in almost parts of the civilized or part-civilized world. And that is why he is here now, in the summer of 1981, in the capital city of a small dark nation known in all the history books as the bloody battlefield of central eastern Europe, travelling culturally. And preparing to lose more than his luggage.
