From the author of "Changing Places, The Picturegoers" and "The British Museum is Falling Down". Laurence Passmore appears to have it easy - a successful TV sitcom, an exclusive home, a state-of-the-art car and a vigorous sex life with his wife of thirty years. But it is contentment that he is missing and in his search for it he develops an obsession with Kierkegaard, has several brushes with the law, becomes a gossip-column notoriety and stays in many strange beds in Rummidge, Tenerife, Beverley Hills, Copenhagen and Galicia. As his life unravels he desperately tries to keep everything together.
