The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold

Publisher: New Canadian Library
Where can an author go to find peace and quiet?
 
Gilbert Pinfold is, by all accounts, an accomplished man. He distinguished himself serving in the war, and then in peace as a novelist. He has travelled widely and has a successful marriage. But age is wearing on Gilbert Pinfold, and the combination of regular sedation and chronic drinking aren’t helping.
 
After an unpleasant interview with the BBC, he decides to take a cruise to refresh himself. The idea is good, but when he starts hearing voices on the ship, things get worse very quickly.
