'Brimming with talent. Longrigg is a real discovery' - "New Statesman". Henry Fenwick's life is complicated. By day he works in advertising, throwing some (but not all) of his morals to the wind as he attempts success in the tangled, competitive world of his chosen profession. Through copy liaison sessions, difficult client meetings and endless office intrigue, it's an exhausting world. By night, Henry attempts to seduce Elizabeth. And with rarified parties, Chelsea nightclubs and espresso coffee bars to contend with, it's no less fierce a challenge. Published originally in 1956, "A High-Pitched Buzz" was Roger Longrigg's first novel. Written with sharp insight and sparklingly funny prose and laced with wickedly accurate dialogue, it's a remarkable and highly entertaining debut.
