Bookit: Faster and faster they swirl, sickening themselves with every turn.

Masked parties, Savage parties, Victorian parties, Greek parties, Wild West parties, Circus parties, parties where you have to dress as somebody else, almost naked parties in St. John's Wood, parties in flats and studios and houses and ships and hotels and nightclubs, in swimming baths and windmills. Dances in London so dull. Comic dances in Scotland and disgusting dances in the suburbs.

The Bright Young People of Stephen Fry's Bright Young Things and the actual 'Vile Bodies' of the 1920s and 30s.
