This is a collection of four novels by Anthony Burgess, featuring the poet and social critic, Enderby. These novels are a chronicle of the gross and fitfully inspired poet's triumphs despite all the obstacles in his path.
Enderby - poet, social critic, comrade and Catholic - is endlessly hounded by women. He may be found hiding in the lavatory where much of his best work is composed, or perhaps in Rome, brainwashed into respectability by a glamorous wife, aftershave and the dolce vita. But whether he is pursuing revenge and inspiration in Morocco, expounding on his notorious sex film on a TV chat show, or writing a hit musical based on the life and work of Shakespeare, Enderby emerges triumphant.
