Point Counter Point

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY DAVID BRADSHAW

The dilettantes who frequent Lady Tantamount's society parties are determined to push forward the moral frontiers of the age.

As they all engage in dazzling and witty conversation, the din of the age - its ideas and idiocies - grows deafening.
