From the publisher

Set in the Far East just after the First World War, Gerhardie's comic masterpiece in the tale of an eccentric Belgian family, recounted by their young English relative who comes to stay with them. Filled with bizarre characters - depressives, obsessives, paranoiacs and sex maniacs - Gerhardie paints a wonderfully strange world where the comic and tragic are entwined.
