about

I feel compelled to share the wretched details …

Recently discovered letters between a scarcely closeted homosexual and his scarcely lucid aunt reveal the scandalous goings-on of Butterbrooke Breeze and its amusingly deviant dwellers.

Long discarded missives in a well forgotten attic comprise the book you hold in your eager fingers. Epistles shared between a scarcely closeted homosexual and his scarcely lucid aunt capture the day-to-day gossip of Butterbrooke Breeze, an English country estate set for scandal. What has been unearthed is shocking to anyone primed to be shocked.

Sebastian Wentworth Greathead (pronounced Grey-Theed) and his dear aunt, Countess Cordillia Honeyknob Pryme, have much to say by way of countryside slander. Poor Sebastian is harassed by an avid butterfly fan, while Countess devotes her love to a meringue-based dessert. Wallow in the everyday theatrics of Butterbrooke as well as the ne'er-mentioned adventures of a favorite nephew at various foreign ports of call.

Of course, all is not sunshine and flowers at Butterbrooke Breeze. This simple post-Edwardian depiction of innocent rompings is in actuality a dark reflection of the corrosion of consciousness and the sins of excess. No matter; the letters of Sebastian and the countess teem with innuendo, satire, and irreverence, and yet their words charm to the last decadent drop.
