A Cup of Tea for Mr Thorgill Author:Storm Jameson It is a seductive world in which the action of this astonishing story unfolds: cultivated, privileged, secure: the close-knit world of an Oxford college, epitomized by the Master and the Master's house, a haven of good taste, intelligence and aristocratic nonconformity. With one or two exceptions, its inhabitants would-if they were to thank God ... more »for anything-thank Him that they are not as other men. Yet these are not stony-hearted snobs; they have accepted an oputsider-Nevil Rigden, product of a city slum. He is a friend to the great Thomas Paget, husband to Paget's sister, and he stands high in the Master's favor.
Bemused by elegance, urbanity and intellect, we discover with shock and then horror the web of abomination being spun, inexorably, fatally, within this charmed-and charming-circle.
