Sometime at the beginning of the last century, Jeremiah Hudgejaw, American business magnate and socialite, is returning from England with his daughter Vivian. A boisterous monomaniac, he has a few peculiarities that guarantee a humorous crossing aboard the RMS Noricum: for one, he is a moralist, and nothing rails him more than the lavender menace-an interesting quirk for someone with an inability to distinguish between genders. At the same time, he fights for women's equality and despises the English class system. Joining him on this highly entertaining voyage are a young Australian and his father, an Austrian psychiatrist and his colleagues, a Swiss doctor with wife and mistress, a Scottish museum curator and his male companion, and finally, shipmates Jack and Jimmy, who enjoy nothing more than each other's company-and each other's bodies. Jeremiah Hudgejaw is a highly entertaining historical satire that takes a tongue-in-cheek look at topics which are very relevant a century on.
