The Love Chase

The Love Chase

(1967)
A novel by

 
Michael Deene is an art student, the son of a pompous bishop. He is a young man in search of love but naive, baffled, and hopelessly behind the times. In search of happiness, Michael embarks on a series of unexpected and wild episodes that take him into the world of modern art. He has a brief and hopeless affair with Liz, a beautiful girl who lives, alas, for food; and Maraday, whose sophistication enchants and defeats him. Ultimately, he finds his goal in Faith, though not before he has been forced to work in a slaughterhouse to win the favour of her father . . .

The Love Chase is more than an extremely funny and readable innocent's progress - it is an unexpected departure with a theme that is not political but personal: the perils of young love and reveals a new facet of James Barlow's talent.

'It should leave you as it left me, eagerly awaiting the next Barlow.' - W. Harley Ruskin, Springfield Mass Daily News

'A painterlike vision for delightful detail, a witty summing up of people, a comic buildup to a near slapstick situation, and cruel tragedy movingly understated.' - Christian Science Monitor

'He now proves his literary versatility and strikes a few blows at the New Establishment in the bargain.' - Post Dispatch
