William Norman Trevor Sansom, FRSL (b. January 18, 1912, London – d. April 20, 1976, London).

"This is a study of what the author believes to be an essential part of the make-up of every good woman, a wish to be bad. Perhaps in most cases only a vague longing, a private pain on a plane with nostalgia — but with Sandra Lee the matter comes to a head. Marriage to a man she loves is imminent: yet her immediate present is concerned with the Christmas break-up party in a London office where she works as a secretary. Most of the action of the novel takes place during the saturnalian atmosphere of this party, where anytmng can happen and much does; and where we follow with mounting suspense the exotic Miss Lee's desperate wish for a Past with which to face the future." (from the dj).

Jacket design by John Woodcock.
