The novel by Anthony Powell
Adapted for radio and produced by Christopher Sykes
Anthony Powell 's second novel Venus berg , published in 1932, relates the adventures of one Lushington, a lost soul in the limbo of journalism, while acting as special correspondent in a Baltic capital during the brief period of independence enjoyed by the successor States to the Russian Empire. Part comedy, part farce, part thriller, part tragedy, it is also a remarkable study of a vanished and irrevocable world.
Principal characters in order of speaking: with Garard Green. Martin Lewis
Eric Lugg. Macdonald Parke George de Warfaz. Ann Zane
