    Although it takes its inspiration from the life and correspondence of Jonathan Swift, Sitwell's novel is set during and after the First World War. It follows Jonathan Hare, a writer and misogynist - much like Swift himself - through his tragic relationships with two women, also based on real people in Swift's life. Described by Evelyn Waugh as 'like a magnesium flame in a cavern' when it was published in 1937, this was Sitwell's only novel.
