That is, until his life takes a turn for the surreal, giving him a chance to take A DIP IN THE JAZZ AGE. Heartbroken after losing his girlfriend, Miles is unable to pick himself up again until a visit from the ghost of Pablo Picasso sends his life in a very different direction.
Encouraged by his long-time friend, the well-to-do Alastair Addington, Miles is inducted into The Ponsonby Club, a living, breathing homage to the days of true sophistication. There he meets the beautiful Evie, and that swish party begins a series of adventures – and misadventures – that gives Miles the chance to truly ‘find himself’.
As Miles throws himself headlong into this decadent new lifestyle, his journey will take him to London, Paris, Morocco and Venice and see him come face to face with love, life, death and despair, all accepted and confronted in a thoroughly British way, of course…
A DIP IN THE JAZZ AGE is a raucous comedy of manners, the spirit of PG Wodehouse introduced politely over drinks to the 21st Century.
