Quatrième de couverture :

The restrictions of a wartime childhood in London and ensuing post-war shortages have done little to enrich Timothy's early youth.

But everything changes when his glamorous older sister, Kath, invites him to spend the summer in Heidelberg. Kath left home long ago to work for the American army, and introduces her sixteen-year-old brother to a deliriously fast, furious and extravagant lifestyle. Dazzled by the indulgence and glamour of their way of life, but at the same time sensitive to the broken spirits of ordinary Germans beneath this sparkling surface, Timothy will find that his summer holiday is in more ways than one an unforgettable rite of passage.

'Lodge has brilliantly dramatized a kind of Anglo-American encounter. To have made so well-ordered and humanly engaging a work of fiction in the process is a striking achievement' The Times Literary Supplement

'His novels engender a flowing sense of fun' Spectator
