Description - Loose Living by Frank Moorhouse
"A book of comic writing that incisively dissects our contemporary New Sensitivities. How our Hero came to be a cultural ambassador in France fell into strange company; how he encountered the Duc and his entourage; how Europe responded to his Australian ways; how refinement eluded him; how the queen of commas almost brought him down by tugging his rope; how he became an honoured member of the Montaigne Clinic for civilised disorders; and how he began to discover the good life and how to get it when disaster struck. As Australia turns to Asia, Moorhouse's hero is permitted one last look at Europe. Loose Living is his dispatches home, detailing his arrival in the wondrously civilised world of France; his glittering life at the chateau with the Duc; his fall into disgrace at the Ecole des Beaux Arts Perdus; and his appointment as Gregarious Fellow at the Montaigne Clinic for Civilised disorders, deep in the Pyrenees. Incorporating Cuisine Cruelle compiled by Chef Bilson and the Duc."
