    Ms

    Evocative of a time in UK after the war that lasted until the 1960s. Self importance of members of upper class archetypes is ranged against ambitious & perceptive young writer & friends. nice balance between the time in which the novel is set & the 'present' time when it is being written. Layers of time differences which affect how the protagonist sees events & characters.

    A writers' writer writing

    The first Spark that I've read. Has a light touch and an entertaining if entirely predictable plot. Thoroughly enjoyable and full of ideas for budding authors to steal.

    Not very convincing...

    This is a moderately entertaining novel spoilt to some degree by the totally unbelievable characters depicted. It is, as has been pointed out, evocative of the immediately post-war Britain and exposes the trend of that period to follow on from the more eccentric societies of the 20's and 30's. In the end it is hard to imagine that so many gullible misfits could be assembled in one place.
