You know what a furore "Carnival" caused
in the book world. "Sinister Street" is an even
bigger story. The novel chronicles the history
of Michael Fane, his brilliant career at Oxford,
his plunge into the depths of life in Sinister
Street and his romantic adventures in London
and Paris. The story is told with all Mac

charm which won the reader's interest in
"Carnival" is more than fulfilled in this life
