The Male Response

book | Fiction | 1961
UK & Comm → HarperCollins

Written at the peak of the swinging sixties, this is an ironic, hilarious and frank investigation of sexual politics and the male sex drive.

Events move fast in Umbalathorp, the capital city of the new African republic of Goya. When affable young PR man Soames Noyes arrives fresh off the boat from England to deliver the city’s first computer, he finds himself swept up in a current of women, witch-doctors and promiscuity.

Soon the indecisive Soames is saying goodbye to inhibition and hello to a new sexual politics.
