Summary (From the publisher):

Professor Treece moves through the English Department of his provincial university with a blend of remoteness and trepidation. None of his students are going to set the world on fire and Treece himself seems to have given up on many human aspirations: love, marriage and success.

Then Louis Bates appears in his seminar group. Hovering on the fine line between genius and insanity, Louis has a knack of irritating and astonishing his teachers and fellow pupils. Not least of them is Emma Fielding, the alluring post-graduate students he has decided to make his wife. This possibility sets up strange reverberations in Treece, but unlike those around her, Emma has decided that there is more to love than availability.

Malcom Bradbury's sharp and witty first novel--a satirical anatomy of the fifties--exposes the eccentricities, the humour and the pathos of a group of social misfits--both students and teachers--bewilderingly brought together for the purposes of education.
