"A rooming house in the suburbs.  Within it, such diverse people as you might meet in any suburban rooming house ...
There is Godfrey Makepeace Thackeray, author of His Own Sweet Will - not, alas, a best-seller; Errol Flynn Taylor, fantasiser and fingerer of the Playmate of the Month; Georgia - sweet, of course, desired by men and in particular Owen who is Welsh through and through except that he's never been to Wales.  In the basement lives Jawaharlal MacGregor, drawn from Bombay to claim his inheritance (his father, he hoped, might be Thane of Glasgow).  Jawaharlal is not alone, being blessed with two women - one brown, one black - five children and a 25-inch television set.
On the second floor Mrs Pendergast keeps vigil, watching for the Stranger who will come.
And the Stranger does come ... Graham Lord, the Sunday Express columnist, examines the lives of these people in a witty and charming book which neatly blends the fantastic and the sinister."
