SYNOPSIS

IN MALCOLM BRADBURY'S virtuoso novel of intellectual pursuit narrator and subject are at opposite poles of the universe of letters. Urbane, polymathic, multilingual, Doctor Bazlo Criminale, citizen of the world, is a mega-star in the cultural firmament, the 'Great Thinker of the Age of Glasnost', published, quoted and feted in every corner of the globe around which he seems to be in endless transit. Naive, anonymous, provincial, young Francis Jay has ambitions only to break out of Camden and into the media. In writing a TV documentary on Ba/lu Criminale, he steps into a world as far outside his experience as it is beyond his comprehension. It should be a simple matter of research
