This novel describes a summer session of the Identity Club at a remote country house. Waited on by brainwashed butlers and role-playing servants, the members of the Identity Club sit back and listen to a series of ludicrous lectures which anatomize English life.

Nigel Dennis (1912-1989) was born in England and educated variously in Rhodesia, South African, Austria and Bavaria. He wrote too little but for all that there were three novels (and one that was disowned), four plays, a volume of poetry and three works of non-fiction. For twenty years he was the lead reviewer for the Sunday Telegraph. His study of Jonathan Swift, one of his heroes as his own mastery of satire suggests, won the Royal Society of Literature award. Faber Finds is reissuing his three novels: Boys and Girls Come Out to Play, The Cards of Identity and A House in Order.Review:
"One of the funniest, most penetrating novels since the early Aldous Huxley." - Time; "Nigel Dennis - no kin of mine, alas - tells a very funny story packed with secret smiles, soft snickers, and hearty laughter. His writing recalls Evelyn Waugh, Nancy Mitford, Angus Wilson, and even sometimes George Bernard Shaw, yet it is unmistakably and deliciously original. To read him is to love him." - Patrick Dennis; "I have read no novel published during the last fifteen years with greater pleasure and admiration." - W.H. Auden
