    The 12 Pound Look by James M Barrie read by Christine Rendel, a biting comic satire depicting man's overblown pride. It is that day in your career when everything went wrong just when everything seemed to be superlatively right. Harry Sims' preparations to receive a knighthood are disrupted by an unexpected arrival. But who is she? From the author of Peter Pan comes a grown-up comedy with a feminist slant which reveals Barrie's sharp wit and keen sense of social satire.

    A rich tale centred around the lives of Marjorie Fairfield, a beautiful and penniless young woman who is the mistress of a wealthy business man; and the symbolically named Ransom Heritage, one of the many young men who were cast adrift after the First World War ended and who has been abruptly deprived of a sense of purpose, ambition, and hope. Around these young people and their circle whirls the carefree society of fashionable postwar London - a raucous, glamorous, and perhaps slightly shrill world of cocktails and nightclubs, tea dances and illicit tête-à-têtes. Waugh depicts a frenetic society where all too many people are "kept" in some way.
