From the cover: “Jeffrey Cork, born 1929 (disappeared from the Skegness Hotel 1989), spent one term at prep school (with the boy with an ‘elephant’s penis’ was tied under the bed to prevent the maids from playing with it), and desires only to be middle class. Doomed to marry Elspeth, he is accused, with his father (Inventor and patentee of The New Improved Liberty Bodice), of high treason. This book is described as a comic masterpiece, the author giving the reader a reason to laugh out loud.”
