This novel is arguably one of the author's best in that it signifies a leap forward, after some three years, from 'Fixed Limits', his previous essay into literary fiction. Here the prose is less subjective and more narrative-oriented, with more than a passing reference to Aldous Huxley in some of its stylistic elements, including a fairly marked philosophical bias. Nonetheless, it is also more wide-ranging in its various chapter settings than before, and the one set in Paris is perhaps the jewel in the crown of this at times very comic work, even though it ends on a tragic note which is the bitter fruit of an undercurrent of dissatisfaction and suspicion that characterize the relationships of the principal protagonists, who are either writers or people associated with the Arts in some way.
