Based on a true episode, this sharply comic novel and Waugh's own biography are entangled in a richly fascinating way. "The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold - A Conversation Piece" recounts a period of mental confusion and breakdown in the life of Gilbert Pinfold, an established novelist of mature years. Prone to moments of paranoia and memory-loss, he attempts to cure himself by going on a cruise to the tropics. But an active imagination means peace of mind becomes an increasingly illusory destination. The reader Michael Cochrane is a well-known television and radio actor with over 1000 broadcasts to date. He narrates Gilbert Pinfold's extraordinary journey with great style and illumination, bringing to splendid life many colourful and bizarre characters along the way.
