ROUGH HUSBANDRY by Patrick Campbell


Email this review


Mr. Campbell firmly believes that every man should be his own woman (to whom he refers as ""the machine"") and he is seen here rising imperturbably above a good many urgently messy crisis situations, like cleaning up after a sack of flour mixed with yeast. In fact, even though his book is approached and subdivided with a great deal more regularity than one might think (morning tea time; the elevenses; lunch; tea; cocktails; dinner; supper) it's very hard to follow this itinerary of intake-- nothing seems to go down except in liquid form. Even the boeuf en casserole doesn't get made, but it all occasions some nonsequential nonsense. His, not hers.
