From the cover: “A harmless joke thrown in after one glass of wine too many triggers a series of revengeful plots, grotesque confrontations and literary hoaxes. World experts on Madoc, one of the greatest eighteenth-century poets, are gathering for a celebratory conference in Wales, in a solitary building run by a religious sect advocating chastity and purity of mind. David Nokes’ witty and sharp black comedy adds a new page to the long English tradition of social satire, in tones strongly reminiscent of Swift and Pope.”
