After a failed suicide attempt at the very end of Inside Mr Enderby, the second novel opens with the protagonist under psychiatric care and working as a bartender at a large London hotel. Under the name of ‘Hogg’ (his stepmother’s maiden name, we learn), he is persuaded to renounce the creation of poetry as an adolescent preoccupation and to pursue useful work.
