Description
First appearing in 1969—and the inspiration for the George Cukor film of the same name starring Maggie Smith—this novel from the author and playwright who gave us The Third Man, The End of the Affair, and Our Man in Havana takes a comic tone as it uncovers the false assumptions lurking under an ordered life. Retired bank manager Henry Pulling re-meets his septuagenarian Aunt Augusta at his mother's funeral. Soon she persuades Henry to abandon his life and travel her way, to Brighton, Paris, Istanbul, and Paraguay, and he finds himself feeling more and more alive as he joins a shiftless, twilight society of hippies, war criminals, and CIA men, and takes to breaking all the currency regulations.

"Rich in exactly etched and moving portraits of real human beings ... the tragic and comic ironies of love, loyalty and belief."—Times (London)
