Recovering in Norfolk from years of depression in London, an ex-writer turned painter by name of Jason Crilly becomes professionally involved with the depiction of a revolutionary sexual machine invented by one of his neighbours, a certain Edmond Shead, and later discovers that his wife, whom he had thought faithful, has been having an affair with the local doctor whilst he was away in London - ostensibly on business but actually conducting an affair of his own! Subsequently they agree to a divorce on grounds of incompatibility, but not before his own personal contribution to the sexual machine leads to her becoming pregnant at the expense of Dr Richardson, her unsuspecting new husband. Truly a comic novel of gargantuan proportions! The cover features an 'indirect', or reflected, self-portrait of the author taken with his mobile camera in a Galway guest house in 2010.
