Clifford Henry Benn) Kitchin was born in Yorkshire in 1895. Kitchin was a man of many interests and talents, being called to the bar in 1924 and later amassing a small fortune in the stock market.

Bored with the London summer, this enigmatic man fills his yacht with assorted socialites, chief among them the beautiful, restless Gloria Swing, and heads for the torrid coast of Africa, where fate, they discover can certainly prove worse than death.

Then there are the Fawleys, trapped in a loveless marriage that Mr Fawley wants to escape so he can marry the housekeeper, Magda.

Before the end of this year someone in this house is going to di. This is the terrible prophecy of fifteen-year-old Hugo, who possesses an uncanny gift of second sight. Then there are the Fawleys, trapped in a loveless marriage that Mr Fawley wants to escape so he can marry the housekeeper, Magda. Or could it be Hugo himself, the disabled boy with an unrequited passion for the man who collects the garbage? As year's end approaches and each character's personal tragedy unfolds, tensions are high at Ten Pollitt Place, while everyone wonders which of them may not live to see the new year.

Shipping & Handling by region. C. His early novels, such as Streamers Waving, were witty and brilliant, with a strong element of fantasy; while his later ones, such as The Book of LIfe, were, in the words of Francis King, 'works of settled and deliberate accomplishment, brimful of diverting characters, incidents and ideas'.

C. H. B Kitchin brilliantly and bizarrely links the worlds of E. F. Benson and Evelyn Waugh in the story of Mr Balcony. Bored with the London summer, this enigmatic man fills his yacht with assorted socialites, chief among them the beautiful, restless Gloria Swing, and heads for the torrid coast of Africa, where fate, they discover can certainly prove worse than death. Beneath a sparkling surface lurk dark sexual ambiguities. Extremely funny, but as suspenseful as a thriller, Mr Balcony steers through the tropics to a climax whose strangeness defies all expectation.
