Is He Popenjoy?

Introduced by David Skilton

ISBN 9781870587648

510 Pages Hardback

Published 1999


After the marriage, the present Marquis sends news that he has himself mysteriously married and produced an heir, a ‘Popenjoy’, and is to return to Manor Cross. Doubts over Popenjoy’s legitimacy force the Dean and George to establish the true facts. This brilliant work manages to be witty and passionate yet – particularly in this depiction of the syphilitic Marquis – also dark and bitter. For those who have tended to overlook this novel, its discovery should come as a revelation.
