Cover notes:
"To tell the truth requires exceptional cunning. One has to creep up on things obliquely ...

Blosseville - an ex-colony where complacency is turning into corruption. Lucien Chabot, a freelance journalist, is hitting the bottle as he reflects on the disappointments, frustrations and aspirations of his home country. Asia is not far away, and the final extract from Chabot's file shows how distance is not measured by geography alone.

The Blosseville File is a sardonic account of the contemporary scene, tempered by Nicholas Hasluck's eloquence and humour."
