Rattigan's attack on the moral vacuity of the 'bright young things' of the twenties and thirties, written between French Without Tears and The Deep Blue Sea.

David is a high-living, hard-drinking, successful writer involved with two women: his wife Joan and an earnest-minded younger woman, Helen. When Joan commits suicide David considers following her but instead returns to a life of parties and drinking.

This edition includes an authoritative introduction, biographical sketch and chronology.
