Summary

Zuleika Dobson

By Max Beerbohm

Narrated by Graham Scott

Acclaimed as one of the finest satirical novels in the English language, Max Beerbohm's Zuleika Dobson is a glittering tour de force that mocks the foibles of Edwardian Oxford, taht still resonates with modern "celebrity" culture. 

Zuleika Dobson, internationally famous prestidigitator visits her grandfather, the Warden of Judas College, Oxford. But Zuleika, "though not strictly beautiful" is a devastatingly attractive young woman, and proves utterly irresistible among the all-male undergraduate body - including the snobbish and trend-setting young Duke of Dorset. Thus begins a chain of events that culminates in a very watery end to the Eights Week boat races...
