Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Twenty-year-old Jenny Bunn is supremely beautiful and stubbornly chaste, which is why Patrick Standish, an arrogant schoolmaster, wants her so much. This perceptive coming of age novel about a northern girl who moves south, who wants to fit in and yet wants to preserve her principles, challenges our assumptions about the battle of the sexes and classes in Britain. It is a story about 'the squalid business of the man and the woman' and 'the most wonderful thing that had ever happened' to Jenny Bunn.  

Few 20th century novelists have explored our preoccupation with sex like Kingsley Amis. The results are surprising and often hilarious.
