Antic Hay

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Jan 1, 2014 - Fiction - 328 pages

In the aftermath of the First World War, Theodore Gumbril, craving excitiment, embarks on a series of wild and immoral adventures with his bohemian friends, experiencing for the first time an exuberant lust for life that his previous conventional lifestyle lacked.
