I haven’t been feeling well today so have only managed a few pages and no lunchtime read.
Once at the second party Jenkins gets to see a different world with those that have opted for finance as their main occupation hard at play. Stringham disappears and jis old don at Oxford reappears as if by magic to talk about some business deal he is trying to engineer for the college and of course himself.
Widmerpool is playing the game trying hard to make the right connections in a world that Jenkins’s discovers from a conversation with Deacon is full of rumour and strange antics.
More tomorrow hopefully…
