"Angell is a wealthy, corpulent middle-aged solicitor; Pearl, young enough to be his daughter, lives in a London suburb and works in a department store; and Godfrey - Little God - has a doubtful past, a job as a chauffeur to a rich and ailing woman, and a determination to become world featherweight champion in the boxing ring.

The meeting and meshing of these three disparate characters forms the substance of this fine novel - a study of character in depth, in which layer after layer of self-delusion is stripped off to reveal the strengths and weaknesses of these three human beings, their essential - and surprising - similarities, and their effect on one another and on those around them."
