Then he meets Alexandra. To use the words of another writer I love, the great Betty Neels, Alexandra proceeds to "turn (Julian) sides to middle and then tramp all over (him)." Is she changing him? I wouldn't say that. She's just bringing his good side to the surface. And does it in a very clever way.
Other aspects of the books I liked were Cadell's deft characterizations, especially of Julian's parents--his fish out of water father, who is missing his old musty office now that he has been forcibly moved into a modern setting, and his mother, who is mildly obsessed with cooking.
But the best scene of the book is Julian's inadvertent meeting with three young students at a girls' school, who also proceed to turn him sides to middle and tramp all over him. Poor guy doesn't stand a chance.
