Elizabeth Barber is crossing the Atlantic by liner with her perfectly adequate boyfriend, Derek, who might be planning to propose.

Together they acted as fake mediums, perfecting the arcane skills practised by effective frauds. Elizabeth finally rejected what once seemed an intoxicating game.

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

She finds human worth in the film and the pathos of stifled emotions and unfulfilled lives. 'If he is unaware of his passions,' she writes of Clive Candy, the film's central figure, 'this is because his pains have become habitual, a part of personality, and because he was never taught a language that could speak of emotions like pain.'
