About this product
- Description'Brimming with talent. Longrigg is a real discovery' - New Statesman . It was a balmy London evening - mid-summer. Half of London were attending Everest parties. If Sue and Eddie had switched the light off - or even stayed away from the window - ne of it would ever have happened ...Following on from the success of A High-Pitched Buzz , we are once again plunged into the world of advertising in the 1950s. It's a world of expense account lunches, Bentleys and champagne, outrageous promiscuity and heart-breaking loss. First published in 1957, once again Longrigg demonstrates brilliant comic inventiveness, an exceptional ear for dialogue and a talent for disarming romanticism in this moving, highly entertaining vel.
