Summary (From the publisher):

A story about being in love, The Black Prince is also a remarkable intellectual thriller with a superbly involuted plot, and a meditation on the nature of art and love and the deity who rules over both.

Bradley Pearson, its narrator and hero, is an elderly writer with a 'block'. Encompassed by predatory friends and relationsóhis ex-wife, her delinquent brother and a younger, deplorably successful writer, Arnold Baffin, together with Baffin's restless wife and youthful daughteróBradley attempts escape.

His failure and its aftermath lead to a violent climax; and to a coda which casts a shifting perspective on all that has gone before.
