Polycarp's Progress

A novel by

John Polycarp Jarvis, called Polycarp after the first bishop of Smyrna because his father thinks "most Christian names are not Christian enough", takes his boss's daughter for a day out on his twenty-first birthday, for which he is fired. He goes on to start and lose job after job, bus-driver, stunt-flyer, fake medicine hawker, kennel keeper, finishing up as a magazine editor and theatrical impresario. A picaresque romp through 1930s England.
