about

Gordon Comstock loathes dull, middle-class respectability and worship of money. He gives up a 'good job' in advertising to work part-time in a bookshop, giving him more time to write.

Only Rosemary, ever-faithful Rosemary, has the strength to challenge his commitment to his chosen way of life.
